I have been unable to use my alt keys in a xterm session.
For some reason it gives me charector codes instead of the
alt-command(in the xterm itself). How do I fix this. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
eightBitInput (class EightBitInput)
If true, Meta characters input from the keyboard are
presented as a single character with the eighth bit
turned on. If false, Meta characters are converted
into a two-character sequence with the character
itself preceded by ESC. The default is ``true.''
If I have text in an xterm, that I want to paste into Netscape, I
highlight it, and use the middle mouse button to paste. This used to
work just fine. Then we recently swapped around some hardware,
including my RS/6000 (a 43P-140 if that helps). Now, the text does not
get pasted, and the xterm dies.
This happens in Netscape 4.05 and 4.5; I don't have other versions
easily available. Window manager is mwm. AIX oslevel is 188.8.131.52.
Clues? (Upgrading the OS is not an option.) Other info needed?
