Re: Backspace/Delete keys problems in gnome-terminal

Hi Michael,
I try that but it does not solve all my problems.
With one setup, it solve the problem in the terminal, but when
using vi, I still have this problem.

It has something to do with upgrades, from RH9 gnome to CentOS4 gnome.
Because, I did a clean installation of CentOS4 in another server and I don't
have this problem there.

I have a problem with the Backspace/Delete keys in the gnome-terminal program.

Here is my setup:
- CentOS4 (RHEL4)
- gnome-libs-
- gnome-terminal-2.7.3-1
- keyboard layout: us

In gnome-terminal, when I get this errors:
- in vim, when I press Backspace I get: ^?
- in the command prompt, when I press the Delete key, I get: ~

The backspace and delete key actions are configurable in gnome-terminal.
Try going to Edit/Current Profile... select the compatibility tab and
play around with the settings for backspace and delete. Hopefully that
will solve your problem.


I have try deleting all my ~/.g* files but still have this problem.

How can I fix it? It was working fine in RH9
