Arrow keys not working correctly

Asked by Pablo on 2016-02-15


I can't get the history function to work right with the arrow keys. When entering a partial command and pressing up I expect to be able to cycle through all commands that start with that, instead sakura cycles through all commands.

How do I set this up to work like in other terminal emulators?

Hi. History function and its keybindings are not managed by sakura, it is the command shell you're using. Sometimes it happens that a keybinding in sakura overlaps a keybinding in your shell, but in this case sakura only has keybindings of the cursor keys with modifiers keys (Ctrl and Alt). As for me, I'm able to use the arrow keys in sakura (tested with bash and zsh).

Can you help with this problem?
