« on: August 29, 2006, 08:44:47 am »
Hello, i've installed minicom from feed .

When i open my default console aterm and start minicom, minicom start but don't work the CTRL-A Z key, every button press the minicom do nothing.

What is your TERM variable set to?  Probably xterm.  Run this command in aterm:

Code: [Select]
set|grep -i term
And see what the output it.  Then run the command in rxvt.  If the result is different in rxvt, run this command in aterm:

Code: [Select]
TERM=
Where <value> is whatever result rxvt returned.  I usually launch aterm with:

Code: [Select]
aterm -tn linux
Which sets this variable to "linux" which seems to work for most things.  I have just run into a problem with vim, however, where it doesn't function at all, and I have to revert to a value of "xterm".

Of course, there is always a chance that this has nothing to do with your problem...

i have TERM=linux but it's not work, so i see that mrxvt use xterm.

Now i have set TERM=xterm in aterm console and work right.

THANKS
