I'm starting to use Screen in my terminal use (tired of sshing many times when I need to work) anyway, I'm finding that the Screen shortcuts conflict with some of my general gui shortcuts. The real problem child is Ctrl+A+Shift+S to tile. If Kopete's running in the background, it does something with that and then if Kopete isn't active, Konsole tells me:

Output has been suspended by presing Ctrl+S. Prerss Ctrl+Q to resume.

I assume I could just roll up my selves and spend a day really mapping out my hotkeys but I was wondering if there was a quick workaround for this in terminal (maybe escaping all hot-heys when inside the terminal or some such thing?)

Also, if you have any other setup tips, feel free to post them as well.

konsole -> edit profile -> advance -> disable flow control using ctrl +s ctrl +q

  • Wow thanks, I never did find a solution to this. I unchecked the option as you advised, however now when I do the key combination it gives me: (i-search). Thoughts? Thanks again! Jan 16, 2014 at 23:04

  • @Anwar while I appreciated the attempt, I was not able to get the desired result using the suggested key binding. I certainly would upvote and accept if it had worked for my problem. May 8, 2017 at 15:58
