This is a lot like disable F1 on xfce terminal. But:

  • I want to disable F11, not F1. Disabling F1 is in the preferences UI (which works), but F11 is not there.
  • I've tried everything mentioned at that question (accels.scm, terminalrc), it does not work, F11 still toggles full-screen.

I've got xfce4-terminal version I want applications inside my terminal to see and use F11 keypresses.


Since the Xfce Terminal moved to GTK+3, editable accelerators are no longer effective.

However editing ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/accels.scm stills works. There should be a commented-out line mapping F11 to fullscreen. Replace this line with an empty accelerator:

(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/terminal-window/fullscreen" "")
