I am just taking my first steps in using USS as a dev environment and am trying to set it up like the Linux systems I am used to. I am connecting to USS via Putty using telnet. I installed mc and it starts up OK but when I try to navigate around the panels the cursor and backspace keys just produce text. Function keys work OK. OTOH, I installed vim and bash and the cursor keys work normally. I have
declare -x TERM=“xterm”
declare -x TERMINFO="./share/mc"
set as advised. What have I missed?
Did you try to run “mc -u”?
Thanks for the response. I just tried “mc -u” and it made no difference, the cursor keys still don’t work. The curious thing is that the mouse works fine, I can position the cursor with it.
Try to do that:
Be careful, you should use absolute path instead of relative like “./share/mc”
That did the trick!
