My /root/.Xdefaults has got:--------------
xterm*scrollKey: on
xterm*VT100.Translations: #override\n\
       <Key>BackSpace: string(0x7F)\n\
       <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~")\n\
       <Key>Home: string("\033[1~")\n\
       <Key>End: string("\033[4~")
   <KeyPress>Prior : scroll-back(1,page)\n\
       <KeyPress>Next : scroll-forw(1,page)
... --------
So, does that mean that if I can find the 'code' for
eg. <alt/F12>, I can make that a hot key for bash ?
Hi, Chris,

While I do not know the answer to this with absolute certainty, I suspect that such a thing is possible. If I understand your meaning, you want to bind F12 to do something, whenever you press it?
You can do that with the standard keyboard utilities. I used to have F12
configured to turn on midnight commander whenever I hit it. This worked,
of course, both in a VT and also in an xterm.
