Hi,

I'm quite desperate, and other sources on the net don't seem to help. The problem is that ^C doesn't work in bash, and it certainly did work. If I start typing a command and press ^C, nothing happens. I tried running
Code:
 bash -c 'while true; do /bin/true; done'

and I pressed ^C, but nothing happened. Pressing ^Z does work. Here are some things I tried:
  • I tried running bash in an xterm and in a konsole window (I'm using KDE), and both display the same problem.
  • ^C works in tcsh (though it doesn't print ^C when pressed).
  • I tried erasing my .bashrc file, and it still doesn't work.
  • I tried ^C in bash in framebuffer, and ^C does work, leading me to suspect KDE.
  • I checked KDE keyboard shortcuts, and ^C does not seem to appear there.


Any help would be much appreciated - I going crazy here!

Thanks aCOSwt! I guess I wasn't thorough enough searching the gentoo forums. :oops:

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads. As indicated above by aCOSwt, see "CTRL+C broken in Konsole...".
