re.: How to send carriage return + newline from Bluetooth keyboard connected to Android smartphone running shell emulator ?

followed answer links to similar questions like How to create a newline on keyboard


shift key + enter key pressed just moves cursor in terminal mode one space to the right

on another, mini bluetoth keyboard, entering Fn + Esc did the new line trick, only once

Shift+Space opens the locked phone and Enter pressed, opens Shell Terminal Emulator

but another Enter press does nothing

upper left "Esc+ Enter pressed, escape Terminal, so Enter button works fine (new keyboard)

Not sure if External Keyboard Helper Demo could help me to test keyboard layout .

  • entering Fn + Space on a small bluetooth keyboard I can switch between opened application: Shell Terminal Emulator vs. Bluetooth settings

Problem solved. Another Shell Terminal application from Play store supports Enter key. Only keyboard by Logitech is supported since ASCII keys input mismatch for mini keyboard
