Re: [gedit-list] GTK+ Emacs Key Bindings

I've been using Gnome-Shell for a couple of years. Emacs is my editor of choice when using a terminal, but I 
frequently use gedit to write short code excerpts and as a general copy-paste staging area.

The problem is that I have installed gnome-tweak-tool and set the "GTK+ Keybinding Theme" to Emacs. This 
works very well throughout the shell and in almost all GTK+ applications. Gedit is the notable exception. I 
can't get any Emacs key bindings to work.

There's also no keyboard shortcut editor, so I can't even override some default shortcuts if I wanted to.

I find it quite surprisingly that Gedit overrides GTK+'s keyboard shortcuts, but doesn't provide any 
configuration UI to change them.

Am I missing something here? Perhaps an extension or a hidden dconf setting?

I too am frustrated but in a perhaps different way. I really want to make gedit work more like MPW which 
Apple no longer supports. On this old OS-9 Mac I execute shell commands with the ENTER key and it's hard to 
break the habit when I change desks for the Linux box.

Here the ENTER key in the numeric  part of the keyboard is separate from the RETURN key on the QWERTY part.  
I want to declare the keyboard ENTER to be an execute command for currently selected text  in a window. Good 
enough would be just to pass control to a shell tool that I have placed in the menu. The RETURN key should 
enter a line end character, 0x0A.
