[SOLVED] Backspace nano 3.0

Yesterday I updated nano (2.9.8-1 -> 3.0-1). Since then using backspace in the editor (and only there) seems bound to the 'cutwordleft' command (similar to 'db' in vim).
Setting $TERM to 'xterm' reverts this change, but that's not a way to fix this. Is there a setting I overlooked?

I'm using termite as a terminal emulator, the same happens in kitty.

Re: [SOLVED] Backspace nano 3.0

Were you setting $TERM to something different previously?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan
Closing -- for deletion; Banning -- for muppetry. - jasonwryan

aur - dotfiles

No, on login it's xterm-termite. (what it should be?)

Uncomment in /etc/nanorc: 

## If your Backspace key behaves as Delete (when ssh'ing in from another
## machine, for example), set this to make it behave as Backspace again:
"bind Del backspace all"

Edited:
This fixed it for me. I wrote too soon - now the delete key isn't working as expected, kind of reversed wink

I gonna skip the initial 3.0 version and try the next release. Almighty nano is to important for me to screw around like that.
