Home / End keys in aterm


Hi,
When I press the Home or End keys in aterm (or xterm actually), it just outputs ~ and doesn't move the cursor. Where can I set this to work as expected?

Thanks a bunch, I'll try it out when I get home and let you know how it went (I imagine it will work fine).

Any more ideas?

You can try ctrl-a to get to the beginning of the line, and ctrl-e to get to the end.
