Somehow when I press F1 Byobu opens its help page in the current window. After closing the help page the window is closed. I am running Arch Linux.

While working with vim I often hit F1 by accident instead of ESC and my vim session is closed. This is so frustrating..

On my server(Ubuntu 18.04) the byobu help page is opened in a new window when I press F1.

According to the help page the F1 key is * Used by X11 *.

How can sort this out/change this?


This can be worked around by unbinding the F1 key in the config. Just add

unbind-key -n F1

to $HOME/.byobu/keybindings.tmux (assuming you are using tmux as backend)
