Description Andrew Farris 2004-03-31 07:04:39 EST
Description of problem: gnome-terminal does not re'prompt after the menu command "Terminal -> Reset and Clear". It is necessary to enter a blank line (which is a valid input line.. just lacks prompt) before the prompt is correctly displayed. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.5.90-1.1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open gnome-terminal and enter several lines 2. Select "Terminal -> Reset and Clear" from menubar Actual results: no prompt is displayed immediately after "Reset and Clear" Expected results: prompt should be displayed for the first entered command This behavior has been present here for a while so is not specific to this package.

Behavior still exists in 2.7.3-1 and I see no mention of this upstream, will move the bug there. I believe what the terminal is doing may be a literal 'reset, and then clear' which removes all output of the prompt. The positioning of the cursor indicates a prompt was sent (I use a multiline prompt).

Hi Andrew, Did this ever get filed upstream?
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-05-04 21:17:14 EDT
It probably should be filed upstream, even if it isn't yet. I can't find it upstream, although the behavior is still there.
