Keyboard Layouts for terminal-app in 16.04-OTA5

  • In Canonicals UT and in UBports OTA3 I used may own Keyboard layout tweakings for function keys etc. Details can be found here: .

    Of course, their location are now not any longer at the same place. I poked a bit around and create as I wild guess a new directory and copied the files to there:

    mkdir ~/.config/ubuntu-terminal-app/Layouts
    cp -p BashKeys.json MuttKeys.json NetworkCommands.json ~/.config/ubuntu-terminal-app/Layouts

    The original files of the terminal-app are in:

    ls -l /usr/share/click/preinstalled/com.ubuntu.terminal/0.9.0/qml/KeyboardRows/Layouts
    -rw-r--r-- 1 clickpkg clickpkg  846 Jul  3 15:26 ControlKeys.json
    -rw-r--r-- 1 clickpkg clickpkg 1715 Jul  3 15:26 FunctionKeys.json
    -rw-r--r-- 1 clickpkg clickpkg 1988 Jul  3 15:26 Nano.json
    -rw-r--r-- 1 clickpkg clickpkg 1841 Jul  3 15:26 ScrollKeys.json
    -rw-r--r-- 1 clickpkg clickpkg 2156 Jul  3 15:26 SimpleCommands.json

    and the syntax has slightly changed, but my old files do fine.

    Is there any documentation about the new terminal-app and its configuration?
