By slow I mean console speed I wrote about my discover in mail 'Console 

With keyboard I've this problem when I press and left it pressed some
function key bash prints parts of esc sequention to screen. For
right arrow that should look like this 
	~$ ls -l /usr/lo[D[D[D[Dcal
problem was solved whena I add environment variable	
But new one is here: if i press one time arrow key its buffered but no
action is made, action is made after I press some normal key, here is
	at begin I've this line, cursor is on end of line
		~$ ls -l /usr/local
	I press three times right arrow
		~$ ls -l /usr/local
	cursor is STIL at end of line, I press 'normal' key "-"
	and resul is 
		~$ ls -l /usr/lo-cal
	cursor is on right place ???

> Some special keys have to be defined in ~/.inputrc to work. For me
I create .inputrc in my home but it have no efect to problem.
	set enable-keypad On
	set meta-flag On
	set convert-meta Off
	set output-meta On
	"\e[3~": delete-char
	"\e[4~": end-of-line

Thanks Jan
