The best of course - Debian (sid) ;-) As far as the XTerm entries above go, I just noticed a while back that Home & End had stopped working, and copied the lines in from an earlier version. BackSpace happened to be one of the others that was no longer there, so I put that in too. It (backspace) works as expected in all the terms I use - aterm by preference, but it's fine in a standard xterm too. Home and End don't (currently) do anything in xterm, other than generate an annoyed bleep ;) Regards, Martin -- firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com http://www.dbg400.net DBG/400 - DataBase Generation utilities Open Source test environment tools for the AS/400 / iSeries and miscellaneous database & spooled file management commands.
