uname -r 5.6.14-300.fc32.x86_64
$ cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora release 32 (Thirty Two)
In bash shell the keyboard shortcut to reach the beginning of the current line is CTRL key + A . This is the behaviour on an Oracle Linux 8.2 server running on kernel 4.18.0-193. Oracle Linux is pretty much a clone of RHEL/Fedora.
Fedora’s gnome terminal is bash as well, if I am not mistaken.
But, when I use the keyboard shortcut CTRL key + A in Fedora 32’s gnome terminal, it selects all the text in the terminal instead(as if it is a text editor) !!! I believe this wasn’t the case at least till Fedora 30. Only 2 weeks back, I upgraded from Fedora 30 to 32.
So, has anything changed with gnome terminal or bash recently ?
BTW CTRL+E shortcut remains the same (takes u to the end of the line)
