Example where I have deleted all Ctrl+Alt / Alt+Ctrl (AltGr) character binding.

To bind key on Linux console, the configuration file inputrc is used.

If you have problem with arrows up/down (ie you see the cryptic ASCII-ESC H or ASCII-ESC M sequences in place of the history), check this file first.
