dtterm CAPS lock not working

Hello,

Surprised that this is not more widely known but here goes.

When running dtterm on an HP-UX server and displaying back to a RHEL 5.1 system the caps lock key does not work.

Is there a switch or escape sequence that needs to be used? Or is it a key mapping that needs to be changed?

Thanks,

mgb

Re: dtterm CAPS lock not working

can you post "stty -a" and check man stty. It may be one of these settings.

Here is the stty -a output:

speed 9600 baud; line = 0;
rows = 24; column = 80
min = 0; time = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^H; kill = ^U;
eof = ^D; eol = ^@; eol2 = ^@; swtch = ^@
start = ^@; stop = ^@; susp = ^@; dsusp = ^@;
werase = ^@; lnext = ^@;

We checked the stty -a on a dtterm running on another X server(HP-UX)and the caps lock works. There were a few differences which I changed but no luck. We checked the man page but did not see anything that looked relevant. It seems like an X server issue.

Thanks,
