Using Terminology 0.9.1 on Gentoo and it is pretty much unuasable whenever I want configure the kernel and/or edit some config files with nano. Example for kernel connmandline if I backspace to delete a command it backspaces to the command before it and erases text about 8 spaces back. Same behavior in nano.
Are you using a debian-based distribution?
If that's the case, toggle "BackArrow sends Del (instead of Backspace)" in Settings → Behavior.
Also ask the package's author to add that patch http://sources.debian.net/patches/terminology/0.7.0-1/fix-del-backspace-key.patch/
Same issue here.
Running E 0.20.2, efl 1.16.1, nano 2.5.2, Terminology 0.9.1. I'm also running Gentoo.
The option "BackArrow sends Del (instead of Backspace)" doesn't help.
Just tried xterm and there nano works correctly without glitches.
The issue is pretty annoying!
Both bash and fish.
Kernel 4.3 and 4.4.2
Steps to reproduce:
0. open new file
- type abcdef
- left arrow twice
- type more letters
- the line is totally garbled.
If you cannot reproduce I can record a video:)
Still doesn't work here it's pretty much unusable when editing text in Terminology.
Here's a screenshot of what happens when backspacing. It jumps all over the place randomly deleting text wherever it jumps.
i don't know why it doesn't work for you. terminology doesn't have any special compile flags to change terminal handling. i suspect it has something to do with terminfo and ncurses just producing different escapes. why it does for you and not others like me... i don't know. i don't have anything to go on atm.
