Bugzilla – Bug 1080313
some keys stops working in Midnight Commander in gnome-terminal with latest updates
Last modified: 2018-02-09 15:20:35 UTC
With latest updates it seems that default TERM environment variable has changed to xterm-256color value. I think it's the reason why some keys stop working:
arrow keys (up, down)
some function keys (F10 works only on second time of pressing)
and probably more
I've changed TERM value to xterm:
and now it works fine until next start of the gnome-terminal
COLORTERM=truecolor also affect the colors in MC in strange way. without COLORTERM environment variable MC looks better.
This is caused by an incompatibility between terminfo and slang, see the duplicate report.
This is not a bug in gnome-terminal, which has, by the way, defaulted to TERM=xterm-256color for about 3 years now.
