I am using FreeBSD 6.2 without X/Xorg. My shell is bash and my keyboard layout
I am facing 2 problems on the console :
1) My backspace key works fine, but the Del and Delete keys also do a backspace
instead of a forward delete. How do I change this ? My keyboard is a basic
2) Bash simply does not remember my commands in the right order. Most of the
commands I type in a login session are forgotten in the next session. Moving
the Up and Down arrow keys navigates a mangled and incomplete command history.
I am attaching the contents of my .bash_profile, .bashrc and .inputrc below.
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
shopt -s cmdhist
shopt -s histappend
"\e[3~": delete-char #should be a forward delete unless I am mistaken
"\eOd": backward-word #ctrl-leftarrow
"\eOc": forward-word #ctrl-rightarrow
set completion-query-items 20
set meta-flag on
set input-meta on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
If anyone can help me out, I shall be really grateful.
Thanks in advance,
