Stupid Question: How do I navigate dietpi-* with keyboard?

Post by odreezy »

I like to use keyboard shortcuts to navigate, but I don't seem to be able to do that with the various dietpi-* scripts. For example, dietpi-config has a list of options 1-10.

The only way to navigate the list is to arrow down - I can't hit 7 for example and have it go to 7. Tab and Enter work for toggling between menu <> ok <> exit.

Am I dumb or that just the only way to navigate these screens?

Hi,

We use whiptail for all the DietPi menus. Keys are (AFAIK):
up/down/left/right/pageup/pagedown/tab/enter/esc
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.
