alias mc="mc -d"
Or instead of mcm, 'mc' (quotes included) for an unaliased mc command.
Works both in bash and tcsh.
I didn't realize that quoting a command disables any defined alias...
It's a good thing to know, but for my purposes mcm is easier to type, and
helps me to remember why I aliased mc in the first place. I had actually
considered using "alias mcme=/usr/bin/mc" which would stand for
"mcMouseEnabled", but I decided three keystrokes were enough... ;-7
FreeBSD used to have midc set up driving a script that drove mc after
doing other stuff, so I used that.
Spent over a day using mc -d and no crashes yet. An unexpected benefit
is that now I can copy from mc's viewer instead of having it go
berserk when I click in it.
Well, this is a Dell 24" widescreen monitor which I use at it's native
1920x1080 (HDTV) resolution. I put a screenshot at
http://ab1jx.webs.com/toys/dell24.gif so people can see why I'd want
to click in a window to shift the focus. I have it at arm's length
and wear my reading glasses. I can read the smaller rxvt windows, but
shift +/- (after clicking in them) zooms them up and down. I can have
them all small then zoom the one I want to work in.
Maybe one approach would be to have the window manager consume the
first mouse click in a window when that mouse click is in an unfocused
window. I wouldn't be surprised if fvwm can be set to do that, in the
window styles, but I haven't looked into it because I just thought of
