comment isearch-forward-regexp key binding using Ctrl+Alt+s
That leads me to believe that the window system is not passing that event to Emacs. I'd ask the same question on askubuntu.com

What does Emacs tell you is bound to when you type: C-h k C-M-s?

comment How to prevent the “Symbol's function definition is void: error” when running emacs in the console?
Ok, now how about M-x find-library simple RET - that should take you to where Emacs is installed, then C-x C-d to open a dired, and in that directory there should be a scroll-bar.elc. Though the directions might fail if the Emacs wasn't installed with source lisp code...

Very odd. Ok, next test is running Emacs w/out your .emacs, emacs -nw -q, and then in the scratch buffer, type (scroll-bar-mode -1)C-j and see if you get an error. That function is distributed with Emacs in the scroll-bar.el package, so I'm guessing your .emacs has something odd, or the Emacs wasn't installed properly.

Emacs probably gave you a Warnings buffer telling you to run emacs with the --debug-init option to get a complete error backtrace. Try that and add that information to the question. Along with the Emacs version M-x emacs-version. That chunk of code works just fine with Emacs 23.2.

(toggle-scroll-bar -1) works just fine in emacs -nw for Emacs 23.2...
