Using the newest TN5250 version (0.17.4), I have yet to find a way to
get the backspace key to delete as it normally would on the console. I
tried changing some lines of code on display.c to case K_BACKSPACE:
tn5250_display_indicator_clear (This, TN5250_DISPLAY_IND_FER);
tn5250_display_kf_backspace (This); tn5250_display_kf_delete (This);
I reconfigured and reinstalled, and nothing happened.
I also copied the Xterm map file on usr/share/tn5250/Xterm to my
.Xresources file. In both files, I added the following line
BackSpace: string("177") n
The backspace key works perfectly on xterm by itself. When I press
Ctrl+V and backspace I get ^H. But whenever I launch TN5250 from xterm
the backspace key stops working. It does delete, but it deletes to the
left, which makes no sense at all.
What to do next?
