New submission from Jakob Aga <jake_mcaga at yahoo.com>:

[PCLOS KDE 2010.12] Console commands (in Konsole & Yakuake) won't work in Python 3.2. Like ctrl+l for clearing the screen, arrow keys up & down for scrolling through previous python commands. Instead I get e.g. ^L (ctrl+l) and ^[[A (arrow up) on the interpreter line.
At first I looked through Synaptic (reload etc.), then I tried compiling the 3.2 version - and built it with 'luck' (yay:)).
The interpreter 'works' by itself though. It's just that I miss doing the usual console stuff. 3.2 is installed side by side with Python 2.6, and I haven't had any problems with Python 2.x
I've posted this problem on the forums of PCLOS, but no one can answer. Hopefully someone here can...?
