I have xubuntu on an Acer c720. This means that there is no delete key on the keyboard. After googling for a while i find that everyone has solved this by adding
"xdotool keyup shift+BackSpace; xdotool key Delete; xdotool keydown shift" shift+BackSpace
to the xbindkeysrc file and then
$ xbindkeys &. For some reason, when i then press shift+BackSpace, it's like the shift key is constantly pressed in(i.e. All Caps, left and right buttons while in text marks the text, when clicking on the desktop the roll down box appears).
Since the shift key is allways pressed in it's kind of hard to test, but i think the BackSpace key also permanently functions as the Delete key, but i might be wrong about that.
Why is this happening? Why doesn't anyone else seem to have this problem? How do i fix this so that shift+BackSpace acts like a delete key?
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
