I've been using GNU Screen for a while now, but I prefer mapping the command key to something other than
C-a, as I use that to go to the beginning of a line. For a while now, I've been running screen with:
Which sets the command key to
C-k. Changing the command key is supposed to also change the command to toggle between screen windows (it should always be the command key, twice), i.e.
C-k C-k. This used to work, but after a recent reboot, it doesn't anymore.
Weirdly, if I use
C-j as my command key, the toggle works fine. It seems to be a problem with the letter
k. But only the toggle command fails. I can still use:
C-k c- create window
C-k A- rename window
C-k n- switch to next window
C-k p- switch to previous window
C-k '- switch to named/numbered window
So the only thing that fails for me is:
screen -e^Kk C-k C-k // should switch to most-recently displayed other window
I have no idea why this would happen, or what else I can do to troubleshoot it.
I'm running ubuntu, and
screen -v Screen version 4.00.03jw4 (FAU) 2-May-06
