Control-L doesn't clear the terminal

Asked by Victor Zverovich on 2010-09-18

Control-L doesn't clear the embedded terminal, it gives a focus to the Location edit box instead.
This is inconsistent with the Linux console and GNOME terminal.

Hello, Ctrl+L is already used by Nautilus... So you can use Ctrl+Shift+L instead. :)

A lot of usual accelerators/shortcut of the terminal are already used by Nautilus. So for most of them, you have to add Shift in the combination:
Ctrl+R → Ctrl+Shift+R (revert search in the history)
Ctrl+D → Ctrl+Shift+D (exit)
Ctrl+L → Ctrl+Shift+L (Clear the terminal)
