Something that runs inside GNU screen decided it was running in an xterm (or similar) instead and enabled Application Mouse mode. (Or something you run in that terminal before you attached to GNU screen, possibly even before ssh, which did not properly reset itself.) This is often the case if $TERM is not “screen” but e.g. “xterm” or “screen.xterm”. The ...
It is preffered to use override file. E.g. # modify /etc/init/tty1.override exec /path/to/qingy
Well, I would like just to post a comment in the question, but I still have not enough reputation. The expected behaviour worked here using yakuake terminal. I've done echo -en "\x5" | xclip and then middle button clicked on a screen session with a serial port opened on it. The device echoed just as expected.
AFAIK normal shell, nor default Linux console don't provide such facilities, but many terminal emulation programs do - e.g. KDE's Konsole has the option "Save output as..." If your current terminal emulator doesn't support that (e.g. you're on the system console, text mode, or on a genuine serial terminal, not emulated), you can always launch the GNU Screen ...
A book that mentions @ and # as line edition characters is seriously dated. It's about 40 years out of date. These are features from the very early days of Unix, and while they still exist, @ and # are not the default setting on any modern system — instead the character erase character is backspace (defined as ^h or ^? depending on the system — if all goes ...
The commands you're looking for are shell dependent and can often be customized by the sysadmin and users as well. Bash is one of the more common default shells in Linux. It looks like you're looking for what the bash manual calls the Readline Command Names and their key-bindings. $ ddtae@ date The @ could be intended as the unix-line-discard in ...
Terminal line control can be queried and/or set by stty. To see the current settings, use stty -a. The manpages provide details. For example, from stty -a you might find this kill-line control: kill = ^U The caret means hold the control key (Ctrl) and then type the character shown (U). To change the line-kill sequence, you could do: $ stty kill \@ ...
Your book is speaking of UNIX command. I think there is no such use of # in Ubuntu as it's linux bash oriented and # is use to comment a whole line. I never heard of @ I can't tell you.
In the linux tty you can use the escape sequence "\e[?48;0;64" or whatever you like but this doesn't work in tmux/vim. Tmux/Vim issue a "cnorm" command on startup which by default contains a "\e[?0c". You can see that this undoes the effects of the above setting. You need to change cnorm to the above sequence in order for the TUI applications to reset the ...
