Hello all,

So, one partition A I have a gentoo setup that I've been running and upgrading since 1.0_rc6. On partition B, I just installed 1.3b and everything went through just fine but I've noticed one difference:

in my xterms under kde, pressing the "Delete" key produces a "~" on the terminal. Now, a couple of facts.

1) Using xev, I can tell that the "Delete" key is sending the right signal (ie "Delete").

2) If I put a ".inputrc" file in my home directory with the line:
"\e[3~": delete-char
the Delete key will do what I expect.

3) The delete key works properly when I'm not in X ... ie, on a virtual console, it does what I expect.

So, my question is this, what configuration bit got twiddled between the older distributions (and must not have been updated when I did emerge --update's)? More likely, what is a list of files I should "diff" to find the difference? I already did /etc/inputrc and they appear to be the same.

Regards,
Mark

I'm wondering the same:

I installed Gentoo for the very first time. Right after installation the keyboard worked fine in an xterm/gnome-terminal. But now, a few reboots later I only get the ~ for various keys in the xterms

he /etc/inputrc is still there but why is it ignored now?
