[Ubuntu 20.04] Enable the Ctrl+Shift+E Key setting for splitting the terminator window vertically.

less than 1 minute read


If we upgrade our ubuntu version to 20.04 and install TERMINATOR, there exists a problem that the key setting Ctrl+Shit+E doesn’t work for splitting its window vertically. To resolve this problem, I search on google and found the appropriate solution.


  1. Download Terminator on your Ubuntu 20.04.
  2. Open the terminal (Ctrl + Alt + t) and try Ctrl + Shift + E.
  3. If the underlined letter ‘e’ appears and the terminal stops operating, it means that there exist a problem in vertically splitting.
  4. In the terminal window, type ‘ibus-setup’.
  5. A window will appear, then click on the tab ‘Emoji’ and delete the keybindings for “Emoji annotation”.
