Description Joachim Frieben 2007-02-14 16:57:51 UTC
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):

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
Respective features do not work.

Expected results:
Respective features should continue to work.

Additional info:
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

Patch that resolves wrong TERM setting

This patch corrects the erroneous setting of "TERM" to value "dumb".
After adding:

Patch0: replace-env-bz228720.patch
%patch0 -p0 -b .replace-env-bz228720

to the "spec" file, the package is rebuilt and works correctly regarding
the malfunction reported earlier.

Comment 5 Joachim Frieben 2007-02-16 09:31:30 UTC
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.

Comment 7 Joachim Frieben 2007-03-03 16:47:54 UTC
Fixed in "vte-0.15.6-1.fc72.
