Terminal issues in F14

Reported by: erikos Owned by: erikos
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Terminal Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: olpc-0.90
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Assigned


In latest soas builds I can not scroll when using less: "Warning Terminal is not fully functional".

On the XO builds I could not edit files with Vi neither, which works in Soas ok.

There was a new version of VTE in updates-testing (0.26.0-1) but that one did not fix that issue (tested in soas).

Sounds like $TERM isn't set properly or the terminfo database is broken. What does

echo $TERM


If it's non-empty, the tack tool might be useful for debugging (I've never tried it before, though).

Sascha, thanks for your quick feedback.

TERM is set to dumb (setting it to xterm fixes it). Looks like behavior in vte has changed.

I have not found the exact message for the change - but I guess like others we just have to hardcode it.

What should we do with this ticket? I'd probably close it as notsugar and open tickets in our downstreams so they patch their packages or ping the vte maintainers to make a new stable release.
