Description Klaus-J. Wolf 2003-02-12 21:46:40 UTC
In /etc/inputrc, there is written:

> $if term=xterm
> #
> # Normal keypad and cursor of xterm
> #

The following lines in the file do special definitions for some cursor keys if
$TERM==xterm. It appears, these redifinitions are totally wrong. Actually, you
can comment that special case out and finally get a working set of key definitions.

I tested with Eterm and xterm (original) with the original distribution settings.

What specifically appears to be broken for you ?
Comment 2 Klaus-J. Wolf 2003-02-16 15:16:01 UTC
<Home> & <End> don't work for example.
Comment 3 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-02-16 16:45:51 UTC
It works fine in MGT and other terms, and after checking myself, I came to the
conclusion that it was the same problem as bug #15254.
