Feature Request: Option to disable F-key bindings in screen-profiles-helper

Bug Description

Some utilities like htop have their own F-key bindings, but screen takes them over. It would be nice if there was an option in screen-profiles-helper to disable these mappings. Alternatively, a way to temporarily disable them (either for a one-off keypress, or a toggle) might also work.

Thanks for the report, Matt.

Nick Barcet actually has some code for choosing different sets of keybindings (much like the selection of a given profile).

I still need to merge his code. When I do, I'll add a set of keybindings for "none", which you could select if you want to disable them.

This bug was fixed in the package screen-profiles - 1.18-0ubuntu1

screen-profiles (1.18-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * debian/install: install all non-ubuntu profiles into
    /usr/share/screen-profiles/profiles/misc; install the ubuntu-light
    profile as "ubuntu-light"
  * debian/rules: call the generate-profiles script as part of the
    get-orig-source target; dh_link the ubuntu-light profile to ubuntu (to
    maintain legacy compatibility to existing ~/.screenrc-profile's)
  * profiles/debian,fedora,redhat,ubuntu: removed since these are auto
    generated now
  * profiles/debian-dark,debian-light,fedora-dark,fedora-light,redhat-dark,
    redhat-light,ubuntu-dark,ubuntu-light: new, autogenerated profiles
  * profiles/generate-profiles: shell script that will generate profiles
    using a skel file and a set of custom "logos"
  * profiles/logos/*: extracted the unique logo component of each profile
    and dropped in here
  * profiles/profile.skel: skeleton profile functionality, to be sed-upon
    by the generate-profiles script
  * select-screen-profile: some hackery to work around the fact that we now
    have a 'misc' directory in the profile listing, as well as a possibly
    duplicated ubuntu and ubuntu-light profiles
  * select-screen-profile & screen: move the environment sanitation code
    to the screen script, such that it is executed each time screen is run,
    rather than on screen profile selection only
  * screen-profiles-helper: add support for keybinding selection, LP: #321735
  * debian/install, keybindings/none: install an empty set of keybindings for
    the "none" selection
  * profiles/common: strip out the automatic loading of the common
    keybindings now that each user sets this in their local
  * profiles/generate-profiles, profiles/profile.skel: drop the grep of the
    caption, put it the skeleton
  * select-screen-profile: remove (), LP: #322833
