- Subject: C-M combination in cygwin + rxvt + bash + emacs
I can't seem to use C-M commands (control + meta, or, control + alt on my
keyboard) in emacs via rxvt + bash. And I'd really appreciate some help or
I'd like to do, among other things, C-M-p to execute "dired-prev-subdir" in
emacs but nothing happens.
I realise that many people ask many questions about key mapping/bindings for
emacs and it's various incarnations. I have solved some of my key problems
trawling the web, for example I have HOME and END working in rxvt now,
however I'm completely stumped with my emacs. HOME and END also do not do
not do C-a and C-p as expected, they produce "~". I added the following to
(global-set-key [end] 'end-of-line)
(global-set-key [home] 'beginning-of-line)
but this did not correct the problem.
So I'm very confused. are there any know problems with a cygwin / bash /
rxvt / emacs combination?
Finally: If I use a cmd / bash / emacs combination my HOME and END keys work
but the C-M-p still doesn't, and it is that which I would really like!
any help, tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
