Description Hans de Goede 2002-12-29 15:45:01 UTC
Description of problem:
konsole doesn't do anything with modfier keys for the cursor and function keys

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

konsole doesn't do anything different for ctrl left instead of left or ctrl F5
instead of F5 etc. I don't know if this really counts as a bug since modifiers
with special keys are not part of terminfo and as such are not standardised. 

Although for example ctrl-left or right in gnome-terminal does do forward /
backward word in bash thanks to an entry in /etc/inputrc.

Also gnome-terminal and xterm send different modfier esc-sequences for F1-F4 and
the cursor keys. Since gnome is the default RH desktop I think it is best to
redhatify (or gnomeify) konsole and lett it mimic gnome-terminal. This includes
the changes suggested in bug 63473 and bug 80650.
