Redhat/Netscape Backspace Key Problem

Redhat/Netscape Backspace Key Problem

Post by Kurt Rupprec » Fri, 28 Mar 1997 04:00:00



When using Netscape under Redhat 4.0 my backspace key does not
function correctly.  It deletes characters from in *front* of the
cursor (just like the delete key - hey, I already have one of those!)
instead of in back of the cursor as it should.  This is EXTREMELY
annoying!  I would appreciate any help that can be given in this
matter.  This does not occur in my Slackware (ver 3.1) install so I
have not dealt with this problem before.  Thanks again.

Here's what finally worked for me (Redhat 4.0):

In /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xresources, I added the stuff indicated by ^.

! $XConsortium: Xresources,v 1.7 93/09/28 14:30:29 gildea Exp $
xlogin*login.translations: #override\
        Ctrl<Key>R: abort-display()\n\
        <Key>F1: set-session-argument(failsafe) finish-field()\n\
        Ctrl<Key>Return: set-session-argument(failsafe) finish-field()\n\
        <Key>Return: set-session-argument() finish-field()\n\
                                                          ^^^
        <Key>Delete: delete-character()
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
