How do I customised shell ".bashrc" or set keyboard options?
 
Hello,

How do I customize shell ".bashrc" or set keyboard options? My shell prints "0|" whenever I type "Alt Gr + |" to input pipe "|". Besides that, I get "0@" when trying to type "@". Sometimes the backspace tab display strange character like "[[[~".

I'm not sure of any file to alter to get my keys behave well.

Thanks

Mimi

You might be using the incorrect terminal emulation. You should update your profile on what distribution you are currently using. If you type "echo $TERM" what do you get? Are you using the actual console on the machine or are using a 3rd party telnet/ssh program? How come your typing "Alt + Gr + |" instead of "Shift + \"? Just curious. Those are just some ideas to ponder.

Hi Christ!

I'm using a the linux console and a German keyboard. Under normal circumstances, 'Alt Gr + q' print the email symbol '@'. Instead, I get '0@' each time I try to type '@'. So 'Alt Gr' prints that '0'.

It's also not possible to use the left arrow key to move left and delete the '0'; because it messes up the whole thing by printing [[D.

echo $TERM say 'linux'.
