I have redefined my right ctrl key to delete, using
xmodmap -e "keycode 105 = Delete"
and this works very nicely, except that whenever I hold the key, it deletes only once. Of course, I can highlight a sentence and delete it all with one press, but it would be very nice to be able to hold the key down, and have it continuously delete (as the the normal del key does).
Can this be done?
