Using vim in AWN Terminal

AWN Terminal is a handy AWN applet. It comes up faster then firing up a new gnome-terminal. I prefer to use it for running some commands or doing some simple editing task.

I am a vim user. Using vim in the AWN Terminal was not possible for me. Whenever I wanted to get out of edit mode (into command mode) in vim by pressing ESC, the AWN Terminal closed.

But now, I can. Guess what, there is another way to go into command mode other then pressing ESC. CTRL+[ is the one.🙂

    Control+C also works.
    Look for bug #178784 in AWN launchpad (your blog doesn’t let me post the URL).
