I normally use Vim on Windows and have had no problems with key-mapping, but now that I'm using a virtual machine running Ubuntu, accessed through MobaXterm, things don't quite work as they should. That includes basic things like
<c-s> for save and
<F5> for run, which I can't live without. I've done my research and read materials that seem to address this problem (here and here), but they went well over my head. Frankly, having to press
<c-v> before a function key is downright weird. And it didn't even work when I tried. Can somebody explain, please? As a test case, if I want to map
:pwd, what do I have to do?
To my delight, I've found that my key-mappings do work as intended on Ubuntu's gVim, so I'll be using that. I still would like the answer, though, because I actually prefer the quick and easy feel of plain old vim on the terminal.
