Bug Description

By default, there are no key bindings for these events:
broadcast_all <<-- Disabled
broadcast_group <<-- Disabled
broadcast_off <<-- Disabled

I assign hot keys to CTRL+ALT+B, CTRL+ALT+G, CTRL+ALT+N. (Screenshot 1)
Click Close.
Key bindings are not working.

I go into Preferences screen again and see that there are no key bindings. (Screenshot 2)

It happens all the time.

I tried with under my account and using sudo. Does't matter.

It works fine in 11.10 and 11.04.

Forgot to mention.

~$ terminator -v
terminator 0.96

I installed it using "apt-get install terminator"

Could you post your ~/.config/terminator/config? I find that when I set keybindings using the "preferences" in terminator, if I use a keybinding that involves Ctrl it gets written to the config file as "Primary" instead of "Ctrl". For example, setting new_tab to Ctrl+t in the preferences gives this config file:

[global_config]
[keybindings]
  new_tab = <Primary>t
[profiles]
  [[default]]
[layouts]
  [[default]]
    [[[child1]]]
      type = Terminal
      parent = window0
    [[[window0]]]
      type = Window
      parent = ""
[plugins]

Which doesn't work. If I change Primary to Ctrl, it works:

[global_config]
[keybindings]
  new_tab = <Ctrl>t
[profiles]
  [[default]]
[layouts]
  [[default]]
    [[[child1]]]
      type = Terminal
      parent = window0
    [[[window0]]]
      type = Window
      parent = ""
[plugins]

Hi, John Fettig (john-fettig)

Thanks for quick response.
You were right, it was said "Primary".
After I changed it to <Ctrl> everything is working fine.

Is it a Ubuntu 12.04 or Terminator bug?
