I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and the keyboard shortcuts are not convenient in the terminal for my keyboard. To switch between tabs you have to type
SHIFT-CTRL-PGUP. Is there any way I can change that setting to CTRL+[arrow right/left]?
In the Terminal application (
gnome-terminalI'm assuming) hit menu Edit → Keyboard Shortcuts...
A window will open with all the actions and the bound keyboard shortcuts.
Locate the group of actions Tabs.
Click the value of the action you want to change.
Click the same value again. It will be blanked.
Press the key combination you want to assign to the action.
Release all keys. The new key combination should be shown and active.
I'm running 13.04 (should be pretty much the same) and the shortcuts are just located in Edit->Keyboard Preferences
Is this not true for you?
