'e' doesn't work in terminal after installing some programs

Hi,
I wonder if anyone has ever had this experience.
After installing Vagrant and Laravel/Homestead, the character 'e' does not work in the terminal. Oddly, the upper case 'E' works, and if I sign in as root, both work - it's just that in non-root sign in the lower case 'e' does not show.
Anyone any thoughts?

Hi Wendy111, and welcome to the forum.

My only thought is to look at ~/.bashrc and ~/.bash_aliases to see if somehow there's an alias for e that does nothing.

I'm sure others will have more suggestions.

Good luck.

Hm, if that is the case try running this command (will be quicker than sorting through those files):
type -a e

Should answer: "bash: type: e: not found"

Edit: actually, that wouldn't stop you from being able to type the letter 'e'. Nevermind!

Yeah, it wasn't fully thought through. :oops:
