Coming from year on Windows, I swapped Cmd and Ctrl buttons.

On bash I used to press Ctrl+A/Ctrl+E for jumping to the beginning/end of line. But, since I swapped the buttons I need press Cmd+A/Cmd+E.

How I make bash recognize back my beloved key combination?

  • Long term it's far simpler to just get used to the difference, than try to patch it.

    @Vladimir You could probably achieve the result you want with a third party app like Keyboard Maestro. However, I cannot emphasise enough on used default shortcuts, because Mac shortcuts are somewhat intuitive for which you'll start to get a feel for after some time. Cherish the best of both worlds.
