Backspace problems in editors
I just installed SuSE 9.2 and when I open vim in the terminal window the backspace key will not work. When i have a file open to edit and im in insert mode, i hit the backspace keyto delete a character and all i get is a bell. However the backspace key works when i am just typing in commands to the shell? Anyone have any ideas? thanks
I just tested a little further and the backspace key doesnt work with vi either. Nor does it work if i just open a text file with konqueror.
The backspace key works like the left arrow when in command mode. It only works in insert mode on a line that i havent hit return on yet. So if I type a line and then hit backspace to delete the last word it works. but then if i hit return and type another line and go back to the previous line i cant use the backspace key to delete anything.
