I'm using LXTerminal 0.1.9 and the function keys (F1-F12) are disordered. For example the F2 key is the F4 key (makes problems in some applications like htop). I have tested the keys in other desktop applications and tty1 and there is all working fine.

    This is working properly on my system. Your keymap may be what is disordered. Please investigate with the "showkey" program what codes your function keys are returning vs. what is expected.

    showkey -k says:

    F1 = 59
    F2 = 60
    F3 = 61
    F4 = 62
    F5 = 63
    F6 = 64
    F7 = 65
    F8 = 66
    F9 = 67
    F10 = 68
    F11 = 87
    F12 = 88

    The keycodes are the same in LXTerminal and tty1. Maybe it is not a LXTerminal bug but I don't know another application to test the function keys.

    I have made a test again and it's working now for me. I don't know what solved this problem. Maybe because of an updated package or a changed configuration.
