Description jmccann 2003-03-07 20:26:39 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211 Description of problem: It seems that the up arrow key sends a different sequence in gnome-terminal than it does in an xterm. This difference seems to break command history editing in some applications, namely IDL. Here is a newsgroup thread on the topic: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&safe=off&threadm=ap0lqf%246rv%241%40ousrvr3.oulu.fi&rnum=3&prev=/groups%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26safe%3Doff%26q%3Dgnome%26btnG%3DGoogle%2BSearch%26meta%3Dgroup%253Dcomp.lang.idl-pvwave I have a support contract with RSI, the people who created IDL, but they don't have any information about this problem. I searched bugzilla.gnome.org and didn't find any documentation there either. I know you don't support IDL at all but I was wondering if you have any information about why gnome-terminals are different from xterms in this regard. Thanks. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open gnome-terminal 2. start IDL 3. type command 4. hit up arrow key Actual Results: Previous command is not displayed. Expected Results: In a standard Xterm the previous IDL command is displayed.

It appears that gnome-terminal is getting set to "application mode" <http://dickey.his.com/xterm/xterm.faq.html#xterm_arrows>.

Closing due to lack of activity. If this is still an issue you should file it at the upstream bugzilla.gnome.org. Fedora has no resources to work on vte.
