I am used to my delete key deleting the character at the current cursor position. Mine does this except
in terminal emulators such as Konsole and xterm.
I'm on a Thinkpad T60 and Slackware 12.2. Here is the keyboard section of my xorg.conf
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
I have tried different keyboard "themes" in Konsole and none of them work. I have tried different XkbModel choices too (pc104 and thinkpad60 to be specific). In everything but the terminal emulators the key works, but in a terminal all I see is a ~ when I press delete. BTW, Ctrl-D does do a delete.
I assume I must need an .Xmodmap entry for the key, but I'm not sure how to do this. Specifically, how do I determine what keycode my delete is generating? Or is there something else I should look at?
