[Q] backspace problems connecting to XDM via eXceed
I am running xdm on my machine. When I log into the machine on the
console, my xterm's backspace is working fine. But when another user
logs into my machine using eXceed on NT (using XDMCP-broadcast),
backspace does not work. What resources / files should I modify to map
backspace to ^H?
Here are snippets from some of my config files -
*VT100.Translations: #override <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~")\n\
I *really* prefer setting termName to xterm.
$ diff /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources_0
< ! /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources
> ! /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources_0
< ! X resources used by xdm sessions
> ! X resources used by xdm sessions on display :0
I don't think it is my ~/.Xresources that gives me proper backspacing on
the console. When I log into my machine using eXceed remotely I have
the same backspace problem.
If the remote user just uses eXceed to open an xterm (and not an XDM
session), the backspacing works fine.
