Hello everyone. I'm new to the linux world, but i must say im enjoying the ride. I never knew linux was such a great OS. However, i ran inot a little problem this afternoon and i have no idea how it happend. I'm using Debian Lenny version. It's on a dell E1505 laptop and all the hardware is working finally after a lot o configuring. However today in a terminal i su - into the root account to chmod some files, and i discovered on the root account the d doesnt work. if you shift D the term will display a capital D, but no matter what the lower case d doesnt work. so as you can imagine i cant cd to the file i want and the run chmod. The lowercase d works fine in my user account just not in root. its like the key doesnt exist. Any help would be great. I'm limited to what i can do till i fix this little problem.
PS - I look forward to one day being good enough with Linux that i can help other people solve this problem. Until then this forum will be my life line.
ok here is an update its only the bash shell that effected. the other shells do not have problems with it. so what file needs edited to change the key mapping. im gonna guess but somehow i edit something that has caused bash to keymap the lowercase d to something else? does that sound pluasable? would it be in the /etc/inputrc file?
