IBus / openbox eats Ctrl-Space… how do I set the mark in GNU Emacs?

GNU Emacs: The Editor to Rule Them All

This problem has been bugging me for a while now until finally today I sat down trying to fix it.

This post


on the GNU mailing list had the working and simple solution: ibus maps Ctrl-Spase to “next input method”, so all one needs to do is to run “ibus-setup” from a terminal and map this function to some other keyboard combination that’s not frequently used, and hey presto!, setting the mark in GNU emacs works again as expected.

Happy holidays!
