This question already has an answer here:
When I am am in virtual terminal and open my editor, I can use editor key shortcuts such as CTRL + Down and CTRL + Up to select lines (select block), or F5 and F6 to copy/move the selected block.
When I log in via console however, (tty, via CTRL + Alt + F1), these shortcuts no longer work. CTRL + Down and CTRL + Up act simply as Down and Up, F5 instead of copying selected block prints cappital letter
E. Only the F6 works (moves selected block).
I believe this has nothing to do with my editor (
joe), but instead has to do with settings of the console/terminal.
How can I use same keys in the tty console, as I do in virtual terminal.
