Linux: Reset Terminal, Clear Screen History

Ctrl+l】 doesn't really clear the screen. How to clear it?

type reset.

In gnome-terminal and others, you can press 【Ctrl+Shift+k】. In general, Look for a menu Reset and Clear.

KDE 4 Konsole: Ctrl-Shift-K for reset and clear, no binding for clear by default. xterm and rxvt: no bindings for either. Terminology: no bindings for either by default (it spends so many bindings on things like video playback 😋)…
