User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
Incident Number: 178492

Pressing Shift-Enter on a Dell QuietKey keyboard produces the control
sequence  ^[OM instead of an Enter.  Enter works fine without being
shifted.  The numeric Enter key  works fine both ways.  New keyboard
changes nothing.  PC is Dell Dimension XPS T550

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login using KDE

Expected Results:  Shift-Enter should produce an Enter instead of control

Is this in X or on the console ?
Comment 2 Bill Wichser 2001-05-18 11:26:35 EDT
Bug is only in a kconsole window and only occurs when settings->keyboard point
to the xterm (XFree 4.x.x).  Solution is to simply choose a different keyboard
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-18 11:30:12 EDT
Sounds like a kterm bug, not a kernel bug
Comment 4 Nakai 2001-06-08 03:58:36 EDT
konsole (KDE console) is not kterm (Kanji xterm)

Reassign to kdebase owner.
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2002-10-17 08:48:42 EDT
It should be fixed in 3.0.4-2 or newer.

Additional info:
you have update to 8.0 before if you want to install something from rawhide.
