Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228720
"GNOME" Terminal" regression after "vte" update when using "csh"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
After updating to "vte-0.15.3-1.fc7", "GNOME" Terminal" shows some
dysfunctional behaviour when "csh" is chosen: control characters
for "bold" mode stop working; so do several non-alphanumeric keys
such as "tab" and arrow keys. Consequently, file completion or
command history are not available anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to "vte-0.15.3-1.fc7".
2. Open a new "GNOME" terminal window.
3. Try tab-completion, history function, etc.
Respective features do not work.
Respective features should continue to work.
Afer switching to "sh/bash", things work as expected. Likewise,
downgrading to "vte-0.15.2-1.fc7" allows to restore full
functionality. I have made sure that the issue described above
is not due to my ".cshrc" file by moving it away from my home
Would you mind reporting this at bugzilla.gnome.org, so we can track it down?

Patch that resolves wrong TERM setting
This patch corrects the erroneous setting of "TERM" to value "dumb".
%patch0 -p0 -b .replace-env-bz228720
to the "spec" file, the package is rebuilt and works correctly regarding
the malfunction reported earlier.
A refined correction has again been suggested at

Improved patch that solves "TERM" variable issue
The 2nd patch works even better than the first one. I have had the
impression that the initial one did not work entirely correctly
although it solved my problem completely, because I have had some
trouble with "ctrl-c" after adding it.
Fixed in "vte-0.15.6-1.fc72.
