help: term reset
« on: July 13, 2004, 02:57:20 am »
Proably because I'm using OZ 3.3.6pre1, nmixer does not obey the -q command listed in it's man page...

so I've crafted the following to adjust volume
# echo 1 is quite, echo 5 is loud
(echo 1; sleep 1; killall nmixer)| nmixer; clear

when the nmixer gets killed ncurses doesn't fix the screen back properly so listings look as follows:
Code: [Select]
# ls
    Applications                        mp3
                                           Documents                           nano
                                                                                   Natalia-Feb14.txt                   notes
                                                                                                                            Settings                            setvolume.sh
               Tomcat Position Paper Abstract.txt  shopping.txt
                                                               antec-cooler.txt                    systeminfo
                                                                                                             backup.sh                           wifi
                                                                                                                                                     fix-date.sh                         xtc.m3u
                                   #


instead of this:

Code: [Select]
# ls
Applications                        Tomcat Position Paper Abstract.txt  mp3                                 shopping.txt
Documents                           antec-cooler.txt                    nano                                systeminfo
Natalia-Feb14.txt                   backup.sh                           notes                               wifi
Settings                            fix-date.sh                         setvolume.sh                        xtc.m3u
#


Under debian running a `reset` fixes problems coming out of nano, under OZ it doesn't do much of anything, neither does `setterm -reset`

Help....  is there a way to fix this?

it may be something with embeddedkonsole. I can look into it. You might also try opie-console, and see if that works.

Actually this occurs across SSH connections...  nmixer complains about not having the min 80x25 when running in the console...  

Maybe it's puTTy my client...  too bad I don't have a proper xterm around...

Thanks for the idea though
