End / Home keys don't work in Terminal
If some of your keyboard keys don't work in the terminal, chances are, your inputrc file isn't configured to handle your keys or you misconfigured a setting in PuTTY.
If you are using PuTTY, ensure that your 'Home and End keys' is set to 'Standard'.
- Open PuTTY
- Click on 'Terminal -> Keyboard' in the left hand Category tree
- Set 'The Home and End keys' to 'Standard'
Ensure that you have
