Re: Need help with German keyboard

but how to change everything if I have the same problem but never used the
real xterm nor rxvt, just gnome-terminal, and have to fix the same fscking
problem? home, end somehow started to work, but I have even used to never
use the Del key, because it doesn't work. Must I change some terminfo file,
if so, then *how*, or change the $TERM value (it currently equals
xterm-debian), install the xterm (what point in this?).

also, i use my customised xkb keymap, but it would be strange if problem is
there. in X-programs everything works fine, just the terminal.

thanks for the solution of the problem, but it didn't help *me* :(
