If alt-KEY does not work, press first <esc> and then the KEY. This is equivalent to alt-KEY usage.
If a key combination is in use by the window manager you could try adding another modifier key like the shift or ctrl. E.g. alt-<tab> is often not available to CLEX because it switches tasks on a graphical desktop, but ctrl-alt-<tab> might work fine.
If a function key does not work, please run the
kbd-test utility which is
bundled with CLEX. Press the key in question and compare the output
with the values in this table.
|pressed key||expected ||notes|
|<page up>||KEY_PPAGE||important key|
|<page down>||KEY_NPAGE||important key|
(\x7F is incorrect, but might work)
(ctrl-H is incorrect, but will work fine)
|ctrl-H has the same function in the input line|
|<insert>||KEY_IC or KEY_IL||ctrl-T has the same function in the input line|
|<F1>, <F2>, ...||KEY_F(1), KEY_F(2), ...||essential keys, there is a workaround|
|shift-<left>||KEY_SLEFT||optional key, alt-B has the same function in the input line|
|shift-<right>||KEY_SRIGHT||optional key, alt-F has the same function in the input line|
|ctrl-<left>||kLFT5 (or other digit at the end)||optional key, like <esc> <left>|
|ctrl-<right>||kRIT5 (or other digit at the end)||optional key, like <esc> <right>|
|ctrl-<up>||kUP5 (or other digit at the end)||optional key, like <esc> <up>|
|ctrl-<down>||kDN5 (or other digit at the end)||optional key, like <esc> <down>|
If your results differ from the values above, then CLEX is not getting the correct input. Your terminal is probably not set properly or the termcap/terminfo database does not match the terminal's keyboard output.
Please do not report keyboard problems as CLEX bugs if
differs from the correct values in the table.
