FS#138 - 'del' key (shift+backspace) not working

The title says everything: The 'del' key does not work. In theory you should have a del "event" when hitting shift+backspace. This is not the case in all progs I tested so far (terminal and default text editor with gui).

I can confirm this. Seems to be due assigning Shift for windows moving. Anyway, in filemanager Shift+BS (= del) don't delete file and in MousePad it act as BS self.

+1 on this issue

Serious issue in my opinion as it makes some things like deleting files somewhat harder as key combos won't work - Should have a higher priority and be included in the next hotfix.

You can fix this by making a small change in your ~/.pndXmodmap file. Change line 72 from this: keycode 118 = Insert NoSymbol Insert to this: keycode 118 = Delete Insert Delete Load file: xmodmap ~/.pndXmodmap And from now on this how it works: Backspace = Backspace Fn + Backspace = Delete Shift + Fn + Backspace = Insert

Personally i'd like to speak against some mapping with the insert key on shift. The normal way to "really" delete something (without using the paperbin) in a filemanager is shift+del. This would not be possible with Shift+FN+Backspace having some mapping.

I also would prefer Shift + Backspace = Delete, and not a hack with the function key. This bug still exists in Release 1, Hotfix 5, Beta 4.

I also would like to be able to use the "del" key by pressing Shift + Backspace.
