    GNU Screen Backspace and Shift+PgUp/PgDn problem in Terminal


    Hi,

    When I run screen in the Console everything works fine, but when I run it in a Terminal the Backspace (^?) key doesn't work and I can't scroll through the output using Shift+PgUp/PgDn. It doesn't matter which Terminal I use (Xfce Terminal, GNOME Terminal, Multi GNOME Terminal, PowerShell, RXvt, XTerm).

    I have the correct key binding in .screenrc, which is

    bindkey -d -k kb stuff "\010"

    How do I correct this problem? Thank you.

    BTW I'm running
    Kernel: 2.6.17-10-i686
    Distro: Xubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft)
    GUI: Xfce 4.4
    Screen: 4.00.02 (FAU)

    Fixed the backspace problem by telling the terminal to explicitly generate ^H, but I still can't scroll using Shift+PgUp/PgDn when running screen.
