Re: Shift-t does not display on terminals

hen I type a shift-t on an xterm, konsole or the console (f1 - f6)
no character appears. This started today.

All the other keys work ok, both lower case and shifted.

However, in vim, dosemu or thunderbird (like now) I can type T without

Try if typing a "T" works in a simpler shell like dash, or just run
"cat" at the shell prompt to echo every typed character to stdout. You
may also use "od -c" or "od -a" to see if the key is translated into
characters not visible in the terminal. All these tools may be exited
with Ctrl-d.

If the "T" works normally in these programs and not in bash, chances are
high that your problem is related to settings in ~/.inputrc or
/etc/inputrc. To verify that, you may run bash with "bash --noediting".
If my assumption seems to be true you will have to fumble around with
the contents of the named files. Read "man readline" and "man bash" to
get some help.

Your problem can't be xmodmap related because it occures in the console
as well. If all of the above doesn't apply, then I have no f* clue. :-)
