[HELP] Quick question about Red Hat and gb keyboards

2001-04-06 Thread Merijn Broeren

Hi,

My experience with Red Hat is none existant, and I haven't installed a n
desktop Linux system in ages, so turn to you lot to ask a quick question
about something that isn't immediatley obvious to me. 

If I change in /etc/X11/XF86config the keyboard setting to 'gb' from
'us', the backspace and delete key give me a forward delete.  I don't
care that much since I can't type on a gb keybaord anyway, but one of my
collegues here is much annoyed by the ctrl-H :-) I tried stty erase and
looked with jwz's [1] xkeycaps. Xmodmap seems to make no difference. 

Anybody got an easy answer?


Cheers,

 Anybody got an easy answer?

One of the more annoying RH bugs. Just do:

xmodmap -e "keycode 22 = BackSpace"

in a relevant startup script (.bashrc will do).

HTH, Leon
