Hi, sorry, I don’t know if this is a problem at the KDE level, Konsole, or VIM. I’ve been running Netrunner 20.01 very happily for about 4 months now, and I am very frequently doing this:
In Konsole, I go into VIM and start editing a document. Then I do :new to get another panel, and then :Explore and start editing a second document, switching back and forth between the documents by using c-w (Ctrl-w) twice. Last night, something happened, and now when I press c-w, the first press makes the mouse pointer visible, and the second press makes the vim cursor blink once, but it does not switch panes.
The first time this happened, I did :new, then :Explore, then navigated up, and did /gyatso (a file name) and then I mistyped maybe hitting Ctrl I think, because vim came up with a small panel near the bottom with an error maybe about jump buffer being empty - something being empty anyway. I don’t know whether this typo caused all this, but since this time, I can no longer switch between panels.
Ctrl-W does exist as a KDE shortcut to close applications, but this has not changed. It’s always like that.
Any thoughts or direction would be greatly appreciated.
More things I’ve tried:
- Installed Terminator and tried in that, with the same problem, so it’s not just in Konsole
- Renamed the ~/.vim/vimrc
- Purged and reinstalled vim and everything starting with vim-
- Rebooted Netrunner
- Booted into BunsenLabs (another Debian) and in Terminator, using the same ~/.vim/vimrc from Netrunner KDE, it works fine in BunsenLabs.
- showkey gives 29 for Ctrl and 17 for u, which I suppose is correct.
So, it seems that something changed in Netrunner KDE environment to affect this. I don’t recall that I did any upgrades in Synaptic, but maybe I did.
