If you use NXClient under OS X to connect to Galileo you may find that your “e” key behaves like a backspace. To fix this, you can do the following:
1. Create a new file in your home directory on Galileo called fix-e-key-for-mac.xmodmap. Into this file, put the following line:
keycode 22 = e E currency
2. Modify the .login file in your Galileo home directory by adding the following line at the end of it:
xmodmap fix-e-key-for-mac.xmodmap >& /dev/null
The next time you log in, your “e” key should behave normally.
