I tried it in Debian (live image). DEL key works well for me.

I will close this report now. Please open it again or create new one if you can reproduce this bug again. Please don't forget to produce info about the problem (see comment #1).

Can't reproduce this under a current Debian stable (i.e. 8.1) and GNU Screen 4.2.1, neither inside an uxterm nor inside an xfce4-terminal.

I can't reproduce it in openSUSE 13.1 x86_64 (using "screen-v4" git-branch).

Looks like it's a Debian specific bug. Can somebody reproduce it?

"se canc"?

This sort of problem is usually the result of a mismatch between what xfce sends, and what its terminfo description claims it sends.

1. In xfce terminal's preference dialog, the "advanced" section, what do you have for "backspace generates:" and "delete key generates:"? If "backspace generates:" is set to "autodetect", you may need to set it to "ASCII DEL"; and if "delete key generates" is something other than "Escape sequence", you should adjust that (these settings agree with what the terminfo entry for xfce says). Also please state what the value for "$TERM setting" is on that panel.

2. If you run the "cat" command, what do you see when you type the DEL key a few times? Please describe what you see when you do this both outside, and inside, of screen.

3. What is the output, outside of screen, of the "infocmp" command?

Thanks.

I'm running screen on a acer travelmate 290, using debian 5.0 with xfce.

In screen, DEL key is not responding: I have to se canc.

Outside screen, DEL is perfectly working (also when screen is running).
