Remap “Home” and “End” to beginning and end of line

I've recently gotten a mac and during my coding sessions, I'm really missing the usage of home/end to go to the front/end of each line. There are various answers to this which talk about creating a .dict file in the Library folder (eg the below) but these don't seem to work in Mountain Lion.

Would someone mind confirming if this should be working, or whether a new method is needed in the new OS?

Remap "Home" and "End" to beginning and end of line

I can't tell if I'm performing the fix incorrectly or the older answer no longer applies on Mountain Lion.

    You are not using Cmd + left arrow for Home and Cmd + right arrow for End?

    Hi Hoshts. No, I am constantly toggling between development environments in win and osx, and would like to make the hotkeys consistent. I've actually found that QuicKeys does the trick nicely - but it's $60 which is a lot for the couple of basic fixes I need.

  • It should still work on 10.8. Did you quit and reopen applications after saving the property list? DefaultKeyBinding.dict is ignored by Xcode, Terminal, and many cross-platform applications.
