Until someone has a solution and to test if it works, you could try to use:
Ctrl + H instead of backspace
Ctrl + P instead of up
Ctrl + N instead of down
Ctrl + B instead of left
Ctrl + F instead of right
and see if it works.
Roxterm is the one that I am using currently. It has the same problem with gnome-terminal. Infact I installed roxterm because of that.
Can you please explain, how it could be related to fonts?
apt install ttf-freefont ttf-bitstream-vera ttf-inconsolata ttf-liberation

Sorry I forgot to suggest you check the font or display preferences, that might make a difference also. I don't have a recent LMDE example, I'm thinking when I used Fedora.
I could be wrong but if it is related to fonts, I should not be able to enter any other alphabets. The thing is I can enter all but it is just the back space key (moves cursor forward and starts printing gibberish), up and right-left arrows. I can not seem to bring the cursor back at all. All other keys type their corresponding letters ok, I just can not delete anything or move the cursor back at all.
