In Midnight Commander, how to quickly set the right panel to the same directory as the left panel (and vice versa)?
Newer versions of Midnight Commander use Alt-o (also ESC followed by o) to do this.
Older versions used Alt-o for doing a change directory to the currently highlighted directory, so it will depend on which build you are using.
AltO opens the directory your cursor is on.
AltI opens the active panel's directory on the other panel.
Tested on MC 4.7
For me in iTerm2 the Esc i (First
press esc and after press i not in the same time) is working well on my mac,
For os x terminal:
Press ⌘ command+⌥ option+o, you will see 'Option is Meta'.
Now ⌘ command+i works.
Required, but never shown
