backspace key in KDE

backspace key in KDE

Post by Mike Wals » Mon, 27 Sep 1999 04:00:00

When I ran 'startx' to run KDE the backspace key worked.  Now after
I edited the /etc/inittab to autostart KDE the backspace key no longer
works, especially in Netscape (ver. 4.61).

I was told modify  the Xkeyboard map, but I didn't have any success
with that.  When X starts up I get the following text on the console...

 The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
 Error: Cannot open "/var/X11R6/xkb/compiled/server-0.xkm" to write
keyboard description
 Couldn't load XKB keymap, falling back to pre-XKB keymap

I checked for this file, it doesn't exist, nor anywhere else on the
system either
after running the "find' command.

Any advice would be helpful.
