Re: xkb settings, BackSpace not working in X

Anyone figure this one out?  I just upgraded and I have the same problem.


Ok... let's start with the beginning. Here are the packages I use(some
might be irrelevant to my problems... included them just in case):
-xfree86-comm v3.3.6-11
-xlib6g v3.3.6-11
-xserver-mach64 v3.3.6-11
-enlightenment v0.16.5-1
-gnome-core v1.2.3-helix

Section "Keyboard"
  Protocol     "Standard"
  XkbRules     "xfree86"
  XkbModel     "pc102"
  XkbLayout    "ca"

PC keyboard
keycode 22 = BackSpace
keycode 107 = Delete

if more is required please ask. I really want to get rid of this problem
as it is very annoying to only be able to delete in one direction!!
