Re: [Evolution] (bug!) Emacs keys again...

Okay, I looked into the gtkhtml sources which deals with the keybindings and didn't find any missing links. The file which provides the emacs keybindings (keybindingsrc.emacs) is still being used. So the test-editor of gtkhtml, works fine for the various emacs keybindings like ^A,^B,^K,^Y, etc. You could try this out by building gtkhtml and running the gtkhtml/components/html-editor/test-editor just to make sure it really does work and I am not missing something there. I do not know yet what could have broken the feature in the upgrade.

I think that is actually the default gtkhtml one.

Yes, it is. BTW, I am able to use the emacs keybindings once the gconf key is set to Emacs. However, I can only use the accelerators mentioned in the *-emacs.xml file, like Ctrl-Shift-TAB for indent and so on. (Please open the *-emacs.xml file to see the available accels).

The gnome/gtk settings doesn't change. It is still set to Emacs
and it only it is only evolution, which is affected. Other
applications work.

evolution uses gtkhtml for editing, which in turn provides the emacs keybindings for it. So, other Gnome apps are not affected. btw, in which other apps are you able to use the emacs keybindings.

Yes, I know. I haven't bothered much about it, I intended to do someth
about the general key settings later. It was only when the most basic
keys ^A,^F,^B,^P,^N,^E,^K,^Y stopped working in evolution after my
upgrade to it became serious.

So, these keybindings were working in evolution before the upgrade? If so, I am not sure how. I do not find the associated acclerators for ^A, ^F, ^B, etc., in the *-emacs.xml file.
