How to add keyboard shortcut for Backspace?

My backspace button is broken. How can I add a keyboard shortcut to map the Home button to backspace?

@rmacqueen I found the following:, 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.
