Re: mc 4.8.11 on ubuntu (LTS 14.04.1)


That OS X Terminal works OK suggests a problem in your terminal emulator on Ubuntu. Which one do you use? I don't connect to Ubuntu but I connect all the time from rxvt-unicode-256color to my Debian VPS via mc + SSH, and I don't have the problem. As a quick test, try going to your virtual terminals ([Ctrl]+Alt+F[1-6]), and see if mc does the same thing there.

mc works fine when on the con locally.

I have spent hours trying to figure out why a console ssh connection to ubuntu (from ubuntu - even the same 
ubuntu box) results in the first (2) key (any key) depressions being ignored until a 3rd key (any key) is 
depressed and all characters are echoed. this is true whether the key is a cursor key, tab key, etc. this 
makes mc unusable using ssh.

I read some discussion about the esc esc delay issue and don’t think that this has anything to do with that 
issue. I played with various params which appear to work as advertised.

If I ssh from osx terminal con to the same ubuntu box and try the same con ssh connection, no problem. Also 
no problem if I ssh from the ubuntu box to a debian box running

I know that ubuntu uses dash shell by default and tried switching to bash. This didn’t help. I have also 
checked environment variables generated by ‘set’ and saw very little difference between local login (before 
ssh) and ssh login (after ssh login).

What am I missing? Thanks.
