Re: Terminal scrolling display

I can see the definition for that in .mwmrc file.

did you mean to invoke "xrdb .Xdefaults -merge" ?

dtterm(1) has: saveLines

 

 >did you mean to invoke "xrdb .Xdefaults -merge"?

 

Almost: xrdb -merge .Xdefaults

Re: Terminal scrolling display

Many thanks!!!!

 

It is finally works. The saveLine parameter was added to the .Xdefaults file as follow:

 

dtterm*saveLines:1000l

then 

xrdb -merge .Xdefaults 

and the new terminal takes the effect.

Re: Terminal scrolling display

Hello,

 

I Installed a new B.11.11 OS and I face the same problem again.

I tried to edit .Xdefaults with the relevant lines but somehow it doesn't work this time.

 

I attached the screen shut

 

This is the end of the file with my 3 additional lines at the end.

Re: Terminal scrolling display

The lines:

dtterm*scrollLine: 10000
dtterm*scrollBar: true
dtterm*saveLine: 1000l

 should have Lines rather than Line:

 

dtterm*scrollLines: 10000
dtterm*scrollBar: true
dtterm*saveLines: 1000l

Re: Terminal scrolling display

Ok,

 

It is fine now. (there was a bad value name inide). So for dtterm sessions it works!

 

 

 

 

Also, we are running scripts that thier outputs do into files.

These files display "online" on the screen and the person how runs it should check the running of the program.

But now due to the scrolling problem it is impossiable to view whole the "running".

 

Please advice,
