Unable to go back with alternate keys from a input screen with only text input

Reported by: Tiger!P Owned by: Victor Julien
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.6
Component: vuurmuur-conf Version: 0.5.72
Keywords: Cc:


When you are in a screen that contains only text input (Edit Config: Plugins). You can not use the alternate keys (q or Q) instead of the F10 key to go back. If you use a gnome-terminal, the F10 is already mapped to getting to the menu-bar, so then you can not go back at all. I suggest to add a 'back'-button to screens that have this problem, or to all screens to keep the UI the same.

I agree that a back button would be best. 0.5.74 introduces new GUI functions, so we could port the screens to those. Meanwhile an option would be to add the esc key. Disadvantage of that key is that ncurses does something special with it, so pressing it once will make it respond only after a short (but noticeable) delay. Pressing it twice makes the effect instant.

Added escape. Alt-q seems to work as well. Fixed by changeset:169.
