How to type Ctrl-C (and others) in terminal emulator



  • On Android 11, I tried in Terminal Emulator for Android and 'Material Emulator'. Pressing Vol Dn + c doesn't do anything.

    For example, but not limited to, after

    ping 8.8.8.8
    

    I can't find any way to stop the ping (except exiting the emulator, of course). Tried all kinds of combinations. Similarly, typing

    $sort
    a
    b
    c
    

    How do I stop input? On Linux I'd type Ctrl-D (=eof), but that doesn't work on Android.

    In preferences, I have Vol Dn as definition for the Control Key

    Note: Thanks for the suggestions! What I'm worried about is that in the Special Keys help item, it clearly states that Vol Dn should act as a Control key (in both terminal emulators I tried). Am I doing something wrong here?



  • To close this issue:

    Thanks for the suggestions:

    @alecxs: The https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.pocketworkstation.pckeyboard works great, and as it can represent a full keyboard, it feels very familiar. On screen portrait mode it's a bit more difficult to use though.

    @IrfanLatif: https://github.com/mirfatif/AnySoftKeyboard looks very promising as it's easier to use in portrait mode and has better access for foreign languages.
