This only happens when I'm running X as root. If I run X as a user, the
backspace key works as it's supposed to. As far as I cantell, they are
both set up the same way? anyone had this problem? I'm using KDE under
RedHat 5.1 (2.0.34)
Can't say about the configuration. In root's .profile, just add:
stty erase ^H
and you should be fine.

Alternatively, you can add the line:
XTerm*ttyModes: erase ^H
To your .Xdefaults, or
*ttyModes: erase ^H
to the global /etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm file. KDE's kterm is a modification
of rxvt, which is supposed to honor all XTerm resources.
How can I echo a backspace? I've tried "echo ab^B", but "ab", not "a" is
echoed. Of course, I know ^B should be entered by pressing Ctrl-V, Ctrl-B.
Can anyone help me out?
Thanks a lot.
