I enabled emacs keybindings as an experiment using gconftool-2 and setting /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme to Emacs. I wasn't happy with it and set it back to Default.
jeff@london:~ $ gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme
But chrome continues to interpret keybindings as emacs. C-a goes to beginning of line rather than selecting all, C-k kills current line rather than beginning a web search, etc.
I find plenty of references online on how to set emacs bindings, but removing them again is proving harder. Any suggestions on what to look for? (It is possible, of course, that I did something or that something happened beyond the gconftool-2 setting.)
