I posted a question a little time ago about mouse that doesn't work with terminal, and then I remarked that mouse works fine, but only under root. Can I change this behavior? It seems i need to recompile kernel to enable support mouse for ordinary users in terminal, how to do this?
If you are looking for mouse functionality with a VIM editor in Linux, then you should try:
This will enable mouse support for your text file and you can scroll up & down traversing your file or can point any line or text in the file.
It applies for every user.
