Jed: Missing file, keys not working
When recently (and somewhat belatedly) upgrading a couple of boxes running the woody
distribution of Debian GNU/Linux to the new stable distribution, sarge, I encountered a
configuration problem with the
editor package. When attempting to edit any file, it would complain that it could not find a file
named "linux.slc" in the current directory. Having acknowledged the error message, the editor
would then start, but the Home and End keys (and probably a few others) did not work.
I cured the problem by copying /usr/share/jed/lib/linux.sl from a non-upgraded machine to the upgraded one. The file linked above is the woody version of this file from jed 0.99.15-5.
Note that the functioning of the Home and End keys also depends on the keybindings defined. The keybindings I use may be found on this page.
