Default What broke ctrl+c ??

Guys,

I have a strange problem. ctrl+c is completely broken on my system. It won't
cancel Jack Schit. It is the strangest thing I've seen. I apologize if there is
some archain Arch notice on this I apologize, I've missed it.


This is easy to test. Just to 'ping anywhere' and then try and kill it with
ctrl+c. I have to open another terminal and either 'killall ping' or kill the
pid to get the thing to stop. Same thing happens if I mistype a cli and need to
cancel the execution (like if I mistype a ' instead of a " and the script
continues on a new line)


What's up with this?

Works for me.

What packages did you upgrade and what did you do recently?

Try a new keyboard to help isolate the problem.

Of all the packages LTS seems the most likely. I'm running on LTS due to the
problem with compiz white-screening on the 2.6.34 kernel. I wonder if some of
the recent changes that caused the problem with compiz failing are beginning to
be included in LTS with the latest kernel update. Dunno. I'll reboot a couple of
times and see if that help ( that has a strange right to it... reboot and see if
it helps

Can you downgrade the -lts kernel and see if it works? If not, can you
try downgrading some other packages also?

Default What broke ctrl+c ??

Guys,

I have a strange problem. ctrl+c is completely broken on my system. It won't
cancel Jack Schit. It is the strangest thing I've seen. I apologize if there is
some archain Arch notice on this I apologize, I've missed it.

This is easy to test. Just to 'ping anywhere' and then try and kill it with
ctrl+c. I have to open another terminal and either 'killall ping' or kill the
pid to get the thing to stop. Same thing happens if I mistype a cli and need to
cancel the execution (like if I mistype a ' instead of a " and the script
continues on a new line)

What's up with this?



OK I've narrowed it down to gnome-terminal. If I use konsole (kde3 or kde4)
ctrl+c works just fine.


Can anyone else try in gnome-terminal and see if ctrl+c is broken for you? Just
type 'ping whatever' and then try to kill ping with crtl+c. I can't and that's a
problem.


I'm using using gnome-terminal 2.30.2-1

Create a new user, log in with it and try it again. If it works then
you have messed up something in your configs.

Yep, I'll do that as a last resort, but finding that ctrl+c is only broken in
gnome-terminal and it is OK in konsole, I'm suspecting it is gtk or gnome related...
