#12676 new patch

libgnt arrow keys not working properly under urxvt

Description (last modified by queueram)

The arrow keys are not handled quite correctly for any libgnt application under urxvt (9.07 tested). While in a gntentry box, hitting an arrow key enters the following characters within the gntentry box: UP: OA DOWN: OB RIGHT: OC LEFT: OD

Digging into the code, it appears the modifications in gnt_keys_refine() are causing the issue. Removing the modifications for rxvt-unicode (see attached patch) appear to resolve the issue.

I just wanted to add that i checked this into my gsoc.2008.finch branch: 1601c2451c449fe30fbcf967f29e4206928e7332
