Fedora: After Exiting Su Root, Backspace Prints ^?
Had the weirdest problem on Fedora 20. Any time I was in the terminal, if I used
su to set user to root, once I exited back into my normal shell, any backspace would produce the
$ ./command --opy^?^C
$ god damn it
This problem is solved thusly:
- Open your terminal.
- Edit → Profile Preferences → Compatibility
Backspace key generates, and change it from
ASCII DEL to
And you're done!
