Hello everybody,

as the title says I have a problem with the crtl-key and flxubox.

Example:
When I run gnome 2.6.32 and I start a ping in the terminal i jsu have to press Ctrl+C to cancel it.
Under fluxbox I always have to press Ctrl+C twice.
Both run gnome-terminal.

When I run "xev" and press Ctrl I get

I admit I don't use gnome-terminal - I use xterm. After all, you are going to the trouble of using a lightweight window manager, why not use a lightweight terminal!

I am only guessing but it may be an issue with your ~/.fluxbox/keys file.

FYI: My keys file contains the following :-

Code:
! fluxbox-update_configs added '(workspace=[current])' to (Next|Prev)(Window|Group)
! check lines marked by 'FBCV13' if they are correctly updated
!mouse actions added by fluxbox-update_configs
