My backspace button is broken. How can I add a keyboard shortcut to map the Home button to backspace?
@rmacqueen I found the following: http://askubuntu.com/questions/24916/how-do-i-remap-certain-keys-or-devicesd, and the first answer seems quite helpful. In my case (and perhaps for any US English keyboard layout), I was able to achieve the mapping you specified with the following command in the terminal:
xmodmap -e "keycode 110 = BackSpace"
That will only work within the current session. The article provides instructions to make the change permanent, but I did not test it.
