While pressing Alt key on the keyboard the control is transferred to the terminal menu.

There is an option in ubuntu terminal (Edit -> Preferences) to disable this Enable mnemonics (such as alt + f to open the filename)

I'm running Lubuntu 18.10 (LXQT). There is no option to do this via gui settings. I also tried looking at ~/.config/aterminal.org/qterminal.ini still no option to turn on meta key.

How to disable menu while pressing Alt key?

EDIT: One of the answers referred to a file located at ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml. Instead of lubuntu-rc.xml what I have is lxqt-rc.xml and I'm not able to find an entry for my problem.

Here is my lxqt-rc.xml file (excluding the commented out example part at the bottom)

The settings for those are found in the xml file

~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml

It is created at the time of your first login

  • Instead of the lubuntu-rc.xml what I have is lxqt-rc.xml which I've added to the question. Please check it out. – vishnuprasanth Dec 28 '18 at 4:37

This is more of a workaround which works for me. Hopefully someone finds it useful.

I installed gnome-terminal since it doesn't have the meta-key problem.

After installing I edited the qterminal.desktop file located at /usr/share/applications directory, changed the line Exec= line to point to gnome-terminal.

Now whenever I open terminal gnome-terminal comes up and I open emacs inside it using emacst which is an alias that runs emacs --nw.
