Linux Mint on Acer Extensa 5220 laptop delete key not workin

Postby RytronII on Mon Oct 13, 2008 3:07 pm

Hi,I have installed Linux Mint(Elyssa) on my Acer Extensa 5220 laptop.
It runs very well.
However, I have a question:
The delete key does not work(it does work on Vista which I dual boot with).
Does anyone know how to resolve this?
Thanks.

Take a look at Control Center > Keyboard > the Layout tab
You have to select another layout - there are lots of options including brand/model specific ones

Hi,
I tried many of those layouts but no luck.
