View Full Version : [gnome] disable mnemonics in gnome or eclipse

November 23rd, 2008, 04:34 PM
I use emacs shortcuts in eclipse, but the problem I have is that certain shortcuts such as Alt-B (back 1 word) open menu items (as mnemonics) instead of performing the correct action. I was trying to figure out a way to use xmodmap to make alt act only as meta, and not alt, but either I did it wrong or it didn't work.

Does anyone know of a way to globally disable mnemonics in gnome, or specifically in eclipse?

I had the exact same problem, and while I don't know about an Eclipse specific solution I did find a gnome solution. I wrote up my solution in the thread I created asking for help, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1735533. Hope that helps you too!
