You can try pressing "Esc" then Control-anotherkey, it's cumbersome but should work.


If you look with Google you should find some config examples where are redefine a lot (all?) of terminal keys combinations (and the equivalent binding inside Emacs), but i don't recall if Meta-Control could be flawlessly integrated...

    Hi There,

    You need to configure the mac 'terminal' application so the 'alt / option' key sends 'meta'. In order to do this, go to:

    Terminal > Preferences > Settings > Keyboard

    and select the 'Use option as meta key' checkbox at the bottom of the window.

    I hope that helps,
