The main problem may be the backspace key. It acts alwise like delete. When I 
enters to lern keys function, it is assigned as delete when I press it 
regardless where is the cursor.

It don't worked also. Running fp -F from a pts (like inside mc or from 
telnet) the line drawing characters are presented as letters ("x" for 
vertical lines, "q" for horizontal lines, etc.). When running it (with -F) 
from a virtual console (tty*) it runs normally, not with poor's man line 

I was trying some things. In console, when altGR key don't work. If I enters 
the learn keys screen, I can place the cursor in any position (in exaplle 
lerning F1) and press keys like "[" (that needs AltGR) and it works. Then, in 
the editor, pressing "[" key (usint AltGr it acts as F1. It means fp is 
reading these keys but ignoring it. 

I tryed fr-latin1 and AltGR keys are also not working. Are ther anything that 
I can do for helping you to debug the problem?
