Keyboard shortcuts in gnome-terminal (Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab) in 12.04 don't seem to be working. Is there a setting that I dont know of?

Unfortunately assigning shortcuts with TAB key is a no go in Gnome (for whatever reason). So this will not work.

it is really uncomfortable to not have ctrl-tab. Thanks for that though, ive already learned to live without it. I should use ctrl-~ and ctrl-shift-~ now. –  NulledPointer May 9 '12 at 21:09
I tend to learn the native shortcuts and use those. So for gnome-terminal it's ctrl-shift-right & ctrl-shift-left –  Paweł Gościcki May 9 '12 at 21:20

That bug report says it's RESOLVED FIXED, yet the problem seems to exist. Was it just reported fixed without doing anything? –  Rahat Ahmed Dec 11 '13 at 0:25
