Re: Problem with the RETURN key

I've had this same problem with the return key ever since I first tried to rebuild after going to 10.2.2
I think I mentioned it here at the time.
My setup is an 800MHz G4 tower. I have a non-apple natural keyboard, so I thought maybe it had something to do with the driver for that. I'm glad someone else has now found the same problem.

return is not defined in my function-key-map.
Adding the line:
(define-key function-key-map [return] [13])
seems to work.

Any ideas on how to proceed further?

Please read the node `Translating Input' in the Elisp manual.

What is the value of `function-key-map'?  Mine says:

(keymap (M-return . [-134217715]) (return . [13]) (kp-equal . [61]) (kp-divide . [47]) (kp-decimal . [46]) (kp-subtract . [45]) (kp-separator . [44]) (kp-add . [43]) (kp-multiply . [42]) (kp-enter . [13]) (kp-tab . [9]) ...)

Note the entry for `return'.  If it is not there, you can say something

  (define-key function-key-map [return] [13])

but this really shouldn't be necessary. Are you sure you have a correct
installation?  Is the problem really specific to the Powerbook G4?
