The GNOME documentation says that I should be able to scroll my gnome-terminal output by one line using CTRL-SHIFT-(up/down). Neither works for me; I get A or B, which I assume has to do with the control sequences that the up/down arrows produce.

Is this incompatible with bash / zsh command history, or is there something more sinister at work? Moreover, how can I fix it?

No it doesn't (you're looking at the documentation for the wrong version of GNOME Terminal).

THANK you, that was driving me crazy. – Coderer Jan 7 '11 at 17:16

I get A or B when press only SHIFT+up/down.

CTRL+SHIFT+up/down on Ubuntu 10.04 work

This is a RHEL system; I've tried both SHIFT+up/down and CTRL+SHIFT+up/down; both give A or B, and don't scroll. Maybe something is eating the "CTRL"? – Coderer Nov 29 '10 at 21:52
