MobaXterm and Emacs

"Whoever wrote MobaXterm hated Emacs users." -- David Nichols

Key bindings

The default keyboard bindings for MobaXterm are not Emacs-friendly, but they're mostly easy to fix.

  1. Click the Settings icon on the toolbar.
  2. Click the X11 tab, and make sure "Unix-compatible keyboard" is unchecked.
  3. Click the Misc tab, then click "Edit keyboard Shortcuts."
    1. Change the shortcut for "Save terminal output" from Ctrl-S to Ctrl-Alt-S.
    2. Change the shortcut for "Find in terminal" from Ctrl-F to Alt-F.

Other annoyances

  • The X font set included with MobaXterm does not appear to support Asian languages, even in UTF-8 mode.
  • The terminal screen binds Backspace to Ctrl-H, and the setting of the "Unix-compatible keyboard" option does not change this. If you plan to run Emacs in text mode (instead of in an X window) you will need to run the command 'stty erase ^H' first.
