Ubuntu 18.04 with i3 4.15
Note: works with Ubuntu default gnome desktop :-( and is a regression to 16.04.

bash> gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme  

and Keyboard & Mouse in gnome-tweaks says "ON" for Emacs input but no luck with C-a - C-e and friends.

This is extremely annoying especially in chrome :-(

  • Tried again with 18.04.1 - no success. It seems that whole gtk keys stuff is not handled properly by i3. – klar Nov 1 '18 at 10:22

Found a way to solves gtk Emacs. Use i3-gnome!

See https://github.com/csxr/i3-gnome also How can i3 use gnome settings in Ubuntu 18.04
