cygwin + console2 ctrl-c keyboard interrupt not working
I'm using console2 as my shell for cygwin and control-C is not working.
I have made sure that control-C is not being used as a hotkey in my console2 settings.
This is how I run cygwin from console2 D:\Programs\Cygwin\bin\bash.exe --login -i
To check for yourself, do ping google.com -t and try to interrupt it with control C.
Here is my console2 console.xml file, http://pastebin.com/mZ3yHe6D
This was a bug in cygwin, it should be fixed in the upcoming cygwin release (1.7.17), see here
Update: 1.7.17 was released on Oct 20, 2012. The problem is indeed fixed now.
So I was running into this issue through the Git Msys install (utilizes MingW32) on Windows too.
The problem was Ctrl + C was bound to the Copy Selection which negates the ability to pass the Ctrl + C interrupt into the actual console. Reassigning that hotkey binding allows you to actually use Ctrl + C again for interrupting server tasks, etc.
In Console2, reassign the Hotkey Ctrl + C to other, then the termination will work. Thanks Silva
Instead of reassigning the hotkeys you can also simply press Ctrl-Shift-C for keyboard interruption in Console2
