Putty Home/End Key on OpenSuse/SUSE

Home Key when using PuTTy in Windows… By default, in /etc/inputrc on lines 135 & 136, the Home key is configured to do something entirely different to the normal "beggining of line" action which every other distro does. It seems this 'feature' has been present for a while! Simply remark out lines 135-136 so it looks like this.

# Home and End
$if term=xterm
# Normal keypad and cursor of xterm
#"\e[1~":       history-search-backward
#"\e[4~":       set-mark
Change the Terminal-type String under the Connection > Data tab from the default “xterm” to “linux”. It worked for me.
