In the TU Munich Computer Science Department, the following advice has
been posted, which worked very well for me.

Insert the following resources into your .Xdefaults:

   *defaultVirtualBindings:  osfPageUp:     <Key>Prior \n\
           osfPageDown:   <Key>Next        \n\
           osfEndLine:    <Key>End         \n\
           osfBeginLine:  <Key>Home        \n\
           osfBackSpace:  <Key>Delete      \n\
           osfDelete:     <Key>Delete      \n\
           osfInsert:     <Key>Insert      \n\
           osfLeft:       <Key>Left        \n\
           osfUp:         <Key>Up          \n\
           osfDown:       <Key>Down        \n\
           osfRight:      <Key>Right       \n\
           osfCancel:      Ctrl <Key>g     \n\
           osfCut:         Ctrl <Key>w     \n\
           osfCopy:        Ctrl <Key>c     \n\
           osfPaste:       Ctrl <Key>y     \n\
           osfClear:       Ctrl <Key>k
   *XmText.translations: #override\n\
           <Key>Delete: delete-previous-character()\n\
           <Key>BackSpace: delete-previous-character()\n\
           <Key>Right: forward-character()\n\
           <Key>Left: backward-character()\n

Have fun,
