delete words in vi & autologin?


Two simple problems:
First:
In others distros when I work with vi to delete I word I just neet to change to insert or add mode and after this, It's just need use the de backspace or delete keys. But, in slackware, and in the x is runing I can no erase nothing... the backspace and the delete keis don't delete nothing.
How I erase a word in vi?

second:
I used:
/usr/sbin/gdmconfig
to do autologin when I boot. But now, in slackware 10, the options that I select when execute /usr/sbin/gdmconfig don't be saved and in each sesson I must put the username and the password. Where are the file where is saved the passwor and usr name to do autologin (with no need to write username and password)?
How I solve this problem?

To the first question, do you refer to vi or vim? To delete a word just press: dw
If you're using vim, copy the file: /usr/share/vim/vim63/vimrc_example.vim to ~/.vimrc and in case of gvim /usr/share/vim/vim63/vimrc_example.vim to ~/.gvimrc and you'll get better result than default.

Oh, and if you want a vim tutorial just type: vimtutor

I refer to vi.
press dw, works!
but if I wand delete letters? why the backspace and delecte keys don't work? If I'm not run x the keys deletes letters and works like in others distros. but if I run X and work in konsole the delete an backsace keys don't funcion to erase one letter for example.

do the delete and backspace keys work in the console itself?

the issue may not be vi...but your keymap...

i think this is selectable or alterable within the menu options on the konsole. I think i use some version of Xterm's keymapping...can't confirm as i'm sadly not home running my linux machine....

Well, i don't know what causes it, but I use vim and copying that config file solved that kind of problems. It shouldn't bother too much because with the letter x you delete a character so don't worry.

Btw, I'd suggest you to try vimtutor since it's very easy to follow the keyboard shortcuts are almost the same.

if you use gnome-terminal edit the current profile and the last tab compatibility and check those settings.

mine ( these are the defaults ) shows
backspace key generates: ASCII DEL
delete key generates: Escape Sequence
