PostPosted: Thu May 12, 2011 10:39 pm    Post subject: Some questions about your Terminal Emulator Reply with quote

I'm trying to figure out the capabilities of terminal emulators people use.

The things I'd like to know:

1) Name of the terminal emulator and OS you're running it on.

2) The terminal type it reports, you can find this using:

#system echo $TERM

3) If the terminal supports 256 colors, you can find out using:

#showme <fca> orange <cfa> lime <caf> indigo <acf> azure <fac> crimson

This should print the text in non standard colors.

4) If the terminal supports the OSC color palette, you can find out using:

#showme \e]P1FF8800\e]P287FF00\e]P50087FF\e]P4FF0087\e]P9FF0087
#showme <018> orange <028> lime <058> indigo <048> azure <118> crimson

This should print the text in non standard colors.

5) If the terminal supports UTF-8 character encoding, find out using:

#showme \e%G \xE2\x95\xA5 \xE2\x95\xA6 \xE2\x95\xA7 \xE2\x95\xA8 \xE2\x95\xA9

This should print: ╥ ╦ ╧ ╨ ╩

6) If the terminal supports xterm mouse tracking, find out using:

#showme \e[?9h

Follow this by left clicking the upper left corner of the terminal window, this should print:

\eM !!

7) Keypad support, find out using:

#config convert on and checking that keypad4 differs from the left arrow key, typically with numpad enabled.

Please report your terminal's capabilities in this thread, unless of course someone else already beat you to it, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Smile Any additional entries would be appreciated.

Left clicking the most upper left character ought to generate \e[M !! - Either the terminals have a poor mouse tracking implementation or there's something going on I don't know about.

1. Eterm on PCLinuxOS 2008
2. xterm
3. yes
4. yes
5. I am not sure what line drawing characters are, but it drew 5 rectangular boxes
6. yes
7. yes

I would recommend adding a test to see whether the numpad sends the right control characters to use macros with. Many of the standard terminals (last time I checked) did not, thus why I started using Eterm as opposed to Konsole.

Thanks!

Edit: Added #7. Thanks Scandum for adding this question!

You can force the keypad to be enabled though, right?
