I've been trying to correct a problem in which (with only 2 users on the
system: root and a non-priviledged user): root can use the backspace key
to delete backwards in xterm but the non-priviledged user deletes
forward rather than backward in xterm (when that user has started kde).
At first, I thought I'd find the answer via
http://www.ibbnet.nl/~anne/keyboard.html as suggested by hburgiss below.
However, the 'toe' command works for root; but for the non-priviledged
user, 'toe' yields: "toe: couldn't open terminfo file xterm. My system
is Mandrake 6.1 (i.e., Redhat). I've been trying to see if I mistakenly
removed a SUID or GUID on a program needed for /usr/share/terminfo/....
or perhaps something related to permissions?
Thanks in advance,
