Use Super key as Meta modifier

Asked by Alan Parker Lue on 2019-03-24

How does one configure Sakura to interpret the Super key as the Meta modifier?

I've noticed that the Alt key functions as the Meta modifier when running bash in Sakura. (For example, Esc-b and Alt-b both move the cursor back by one word.) URxvt allows setting the modifier key by adding the line `URxvt.modifier: super` to `~/.Xresources`; see https://github.com/exg/rxvt-unicode/blob/7164daa90b6f8f81616e9a674239969fd6bc4e85/src/init.C#L1168. Is there a corresponding setting for Sakura? If not, is it possible to add such a setting to `sakura.conf`?

No, there isn't a corresponding setting. Sakura just relies in the modifiers from gdk. Please feel free to create a bug report about this so maybe someone can provide a patch for this.
