- Subject: Disabling "alt-*" menu functionality
Is there any way to prevent gtk from taking over "alt-*" handling (e.g. alt-f for _File menu, alt-e for _Edit menu) from the application? I can see that some users use that, but others (like me) prefer to rebind alt to other functionality (e.g. find in Firefox).
Looking into this launchpad ticket , it appears that gtk is the root cause here, which is why I'm bringing it up on this list.
There are a handful of suggestions on that ticket, none of which seem to apply to gtk-3. Is there another way to reconfigure gtk in this regard? It seems to be a problem across a variety of window managers (I've seen it in xfce4/xfwm, unity, and lxde/openbox).
I didn't see any tickets filed about this in the gtk bug tracker, but searching for "alt menu" resulted in a lot f hits...
