KDE Backspace proble,
I recently installed Slackware 10 . I am now having a problem with the backspace key in KDE. When I use the backspace key the cursor moves to the left and the character is gone. However when I move to the right by entering another character or hitting the space bar the letter 'q' is in the place of the character I wanted to delete.
After doing some searching online I created a file called .Xmodmap and put it in the X11/xinit directory. In tis file I entered keycode 22 = "BackSpace". This id not help. I have this problem in all KDE apps and terminal windows.
I have the same set up on a PC at work (different model pc) with no problems.
Any suggestions as to how to get the backspace key to function properly?
