I'm surprised neither of them work. The linux console is set up to
produce a delete when backspace is hit. XFree emulates this. Typical
behavior is both bs and del producing a del. Here is the xmodmap
sequence to set both, though the second shouldn't be necessary.
xmodmap -e << END
! Fixes backspace
keycode 22 = BackSpace
! Shouldn't be necessary
keycode 107 = Delete
If you need to fool with xmodmap more, you can find out keycodes with
xev(1) and keysymnames from <X11/keysymdef.h>.
