Ubuntu 10.10, 32 bit, XTerm(261), Keyboard layout = Canadian
Somehow, the backquote (backtick = `) character can't be input does not get entered in XTerm. I type it and nothing happens. The cursor does not move forward. Nor can I type the è (e with grave). This is normally input by typing the backtick followed by an e. I can type the accented é into XTerm as it is a key on the keyboard.
I know it works because I can input the ` backtick and è etc in Terminal (gnome-terminal).
I don't want to change the keyboard layout. termcap? terminfo? maybe that has something to do with it ... something is intercepting that backtick ... all other special characters can be input without problem.
Someone please help me solve this mystery. I like to use XTerm and I need the backquotes.
