I am running Ubuntu server 16.04 LTS guest OS in Virtualbox 5.0.8 under Ubuntu MATE 15.10 LTS host OS. I am setting up a little development LAMP server and I am editing apache configuration files. I used nano to edit and everything seemed to work with the keyboard. However trying to save and exit the file doesn't seem to be working.
All of nano's commands seem to use the format of ctrl + . NOTE: The HOST Control button is "right ctrl" and I am trying to use the "left ctrl" for commands. ctrl + x - is the command to exit the file. however pushing ctrl + x (in combination, that is holding left ctrl and pressing the 'x'button) only outputs the letter x to the file as if i was just pressing it by itself.
My main issue now is that I can't even exit the file to try it with vi instead (since it doesn't use any ctrl + for simple editing ( ':wq' will work).
Any help with this issue would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
