I'm using Linux Mint on a MacBook and on its keyboard the equivalent for the INSERT key is the combination

At the moment I can only see the intended behavior of this combination in GNU-Emacs: In there, the overwrite-mode is bound to
For example, in the webbrowser it has no effect. Inside a linux terminal and as well inside any of the terminal emulators I tried (e.g. konsole, xterm) instead of switching to the insert mode, the escape sequence
[2~ is printed to the screen.
Since I think its a useful thing to have, I want to get it working. Does anybody know, where to fix this?
By the way:
Fn + Backspace, representing
"DELETE" works fine in the mentioned applications.
By the way no. 2: I'm using the fish shell. Within the bash shell, the escape sequence is not printed, but the key combination has no effect neither.
