Asked by Junaid on 2014-10-16

i have installed the nautilus terminal using .tar.gz (sudo bash install.sh --install)
it installed correctly but now in terminal when i hit backspace it changes to previous directory instead of removing the last character.
sorry for bad english

It is a well known problem, but Nautilus Terminal is no more maintained, so it will not be solved in the near future.

i got it working by changing the keys function for nautilus

1.Open ~/.config/nautilus/ folder. Here you should see a file named accels. It contains all available nautilus actions you can assign an accel to.
2. search for 'slash' and 'backspace'
uncomment those lines and edit them from
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/ShellActions/PromptLocationSlashAccel" "slash")
to
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/ShellActions/PromptLocationSlashAccel" "<Primary>slash")

Thanks Junaid, your suggestion is actually works in my 14.04 amd64 machine.
But with the Tilde(~) character, there is same problem. I tried to append <Primary> to asciitilde in the accels but it does not seem to work.
