ALT Linux Bugzilla – #1116
doesn\'t work in linux VC

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
programs that use mouse in linux VC (through libgpm) have lost this feature wit
the new libgpm. libgpm contains code that always fails if only not TERM=xterm.
login into a linux VC, start mc, try to do smth with the mouse. It doesn\'t
react upon mouse actions.
The same thing in GNU Emacs started in a VC. There, you are able to see the
error messages printed by libgpm (in \'*Messages*\' buffer: C-x b ...): they
very similar to those printed in Eterm+mc (see #1086).
Fixed in gpm-1.20.1-alt0.2rc1
Now the situation is better, but not perfect.
$ rpm -q mc gpm libgpm; rpm -V mc gpm libgpm
After running /sbin/pam_console_apply, the mouse works in mc and in links in linux VC. (That\'s not good that after upgrading gpm, the permissions are not correct for /dev/gpmctl.)
Ctrl-O in mc doesn\'t work as expected (doesn\'t show the hidden screen), probably because of the debugging garbage from libgpm. (For instance, start man rpm in the backscreen of MC, then press Ctrl-O a pair of times, and you won\'t see the man-page.)
GNU Emacs still reports errors, this is for sure because of the debugging messages printed out by /usr/bin/mev.
Please, disable debugging output of libgpm.
Running man is a bad example. Well, simply a shell prompt should be there, in
xterm it is there, un linux VC thje screen is empty.
Added call to /sbin/pam_console_apply at the gpm startup in
$ rpm -qa \\*gpm\\*
Again, programs run in linux console don\'t work with gpm:
links has no reaction on mouse clicks at menu-items (links-0.97-alt2). mc crashes. Emacs+mev doesn\'t work as they should.
Latest fix (libgpm-1.20.1-alt0.5rc1) apparently breaks libgpm in linux console.
