I'm currently using #!Waldorf, but have used Manjaro, Mint, Ubunto, Fedora, etc.

Is there a way to make my terminal always behave like it's passed to less but without the (END) "feature" that requires I quit before I type anymore text.

What I'm looking for, is a terminal that always supports scrolling left,right, up and down with the keyboard... and "No, SHIFT+PgUp and SHIFT+PgDn are not the same thing".

The command less allows for a "natural" scrolling as if I were viewing the terminal's output inside of a window.

Clearly the ability to detect when output has exceeded the current viewport's width and height exist, does anyone know how to incorporate this into the terminal itself?
