Description Hans de Goede 2000-08-07 22:33:17 UTC
Eterm sends the wrong code for backspace it sends ^H while it should send
\0177. Also the patch in the SRPM makes it sends the wrong codes for home
and end, the defaults are correct. I know the patch currently in is my own,
but RedHat switched to the debian keybinding standard afterwards, so the
original patch is no longer correct. Last it sends VT220 codes for F1-F4
where it should send VT100 codes, as xterm does.

I'll attach a new version of the backspace-etc patch which fixes all the
above bugs.

Thanks. The patch has been applied, and it's built.


Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2000-08-19 11:31:06 UTC
Verified, its fine now.

One very small nitpick, very probably for 7.1 there are still them.cfg.in.orig
files in /usr/share/Eterm/themes/*

Possible fix, don't lett patch make backups in the spec

Comment 4 Tim Powers 2000-08-19 12:06:42 UTC
Why wait till 7.1 for this? Fixed.

I understood you were in this very deep code freeze.
