    Delete key stopped functioning


    Hey guys,

    I'm using Gnome as my DM.

    Anyway, I was messing around with key configurations and the Delete key stopped functioning the way I expect it to. It does absolutely nothing,

    xev returns ...

    Code:
    KeymapNotify event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    	keys:  2   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   
    		   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0
    Any ideas?

    It needs to be sending the ASCII character 127 (DEL). I would test to see if it's doing that, and if not, then perhaps change your settings back the way they were
    When I find myself burried in errors, Windows Help appears to me; speaking words of wisdom, Reboot!
