View Full Version : Del key not working

6th March 2012, 06:30 AM
Not sure if I've turned off something (in F16 Gnome), but my Del key doesn't work. I have to, instead, right-click and move the file to the trash if I want to delete something.

Any idea why and how I can fix it?

You cannot fix it. Some idiot decided that the delete key was danderous. You have to do ctrl+delete now to delete anything. There are some hacks to get it back, but it is not clear if they always work. Google gnome 3 delete key.

Apart from the delete key, there are other "quirks" associated with GNOME 3. You might want to take a look at this - GNOME shell cheat sheet (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/CheatSheet)
