Yes!, it is working fine. I am user mapkeys es.

It works fine, thank you!

Yes, it works right in Rhide. But RHide has other problems... in example it 
does not convert variable names to uppercase when evaluating/watching, and 
some problems with keys... And I had problems on compiling rhide then I can't 
try to fix these problems.

My linux is running "loadkeys es" I also tryed "loadkeys es-latin1" with the 
same results...

I just discovered something!!

In a console, if I runs mc and presses CTRL+O for openning a shell, then the 
keys works with fp, but line drawing characters appears like in an X Terminal 
without the options you given...
