Terminal: switch ALT CTRL in linux key mode

Description

When setting the keymap to linux/windows shortcut mode also the terminal short cuts are switched, e.g. now I have to press alt + r instead ctrl + r to search the history.

I took a look at the terminal code but not sure where to add this check. Could somebody give me a hint? thanks

When you switch to the non-default modifier roles, Alt and Ctrl switch key roles *everywhere* in Haiku. The behavior is entirely intended, particularly in the Terminal. This way common shortcuts (Cmd-C, Cmd-V,...) don't clash with the terminal control shortcuts (Ctrl-C and friends).

Yes maybe, but its simply not the "linux mode" a user would expect when coming from any linux terminal I know.

Sure, but that's just something you'll have to live with.

Yeah after giving it another thought I aggree, sacrificeing the copy and past shortcut is not a good solution also if it still would be accesible in the menu. Maybe a info via the notification system when first pressing a shortcut in the terminal in linux mode...
