I am absolutely e*d about running X on Linux. It took some
figuring out and kernel recompiles and other tricks, but it works.
EXCEPT that I haven't figured out how to get the function keys in
emacs to work like without X. I mean, I made a nice vt100.el and
keypad.el so that the PgUp key scrolls one screen up, the - and + keys
on the numeric keypad do cut and paste, and so on. This all worked
nicely on the VAX/VMS, and on Linux emacs. But now, running emacs
in X, these keys don't work anymore.
I tried to set the TERM environment variable to vt100 (is default xterm)
in the xterm window right before I launch emacs &, and emacs seems to
see this value (M-! echo $TERM shows indeed vt100), but to no avail.
Is there something I need to know about X to get my function keys back?
