ESC from Trillian madness

ESC key closes IRC window

Prefrences > Events > Advanced > Add > Event Type "Hotkey" > Click "Next key Pressed" and hit your ESC key. > Action Type: Sound. Leave the rest blank and hit okay. This should remap ESC key to do NOTHING when you click it while in trillian.

Easy, really! WTF?!?


  • setting up this key mapping turns off the ESC key for other applications as well! i need ESC in my SSH window, but when i set up this mapping, it makes my SSH client igore ESC also. any other suggestions?

  • Yeah, yeah.

    Actually, I installed SuSE on a box at work the other day. THe install process was really slick - much slicker than Windows.

    If the rest of the UI has similarly improved, I might think seriously about installing Linux at home.

    Trouble is, I'd prefer quite a few other things to taking the time to get familiar with *nix again (used at at Uni).

    Maybe you should evangelise one day...
