your text is getting overwritten.
So, is there any way of getting rid of my insert key? Or better yet, can I replace Insert with Backspace? The answer: xmodmap
Here's what I did:
xmodmap -pke > ~/.xmodmap.myown(This created my own xmodmap file)
- Open it in a text editor. Find where Insert is. (Keycode 106 in my case)
- Find the line with Backspace, and replace the insert value with backspace. In the end, it will look something like this:
keycode 106 = BackSpace Terminate_Server
And incase you can't find which keycode is what, then you can run
xevin a terminal. Press a key, and its info will be displayed on the terminal.
To use this new configuration, I ran the command:
And so that I don't have to run it everytime, I put this command in my KDE autostart directory in a shellscript.
Pretty neat eh?
