View Full Version : [ubuntu] finch in screen, alt codes

September 11th, 2009, 01:30 PM
I am running screen in xterm as an alternative to tabs in gnome-terminal.
However, it seems to be blocking keyboard shortcuts.

Eg for Finch, switching to the next open window is Alt+n, but if run in screen, it prints a weird letter (usally an i with a different tittle(yes, that is not a typo) for foreign characters).
This is not what is wanted.

Any ideas if it is screen or an incompatibility with finch, or a way of actually sending the alt key combination to finch easily?
