Home/End keys don't work
Im not sure if this had anything to with updateing to the current KDE.
My HOME and END keys do not work in Konsole or xterm. When I press them, I get a PC beep. They work fine in other applications. Tried the different keyboard settings in Konsole, but none of them work.

I think the problem is in readline's configuration. For an exhaustive explanation, check info readline

A fast solution would be
- create the environment variable INPUTRC
export INPUTRC=$HOME/.inputrc
- put in the file $HOME/.inputrc the lines

set editing-mode emacs
$if mode=emacs
Del: backward-delete-char
#lfd is backspace
lfd: delete-char
#this is the insert and end keys config
"\e[8~": end-of-line
"\e[7~": beginning-of-line
"\e[5~": backward-word
"\e[6~": forward-word
