The answers using $LINES are unnecessarily non-portable. As done in resize, you can simply ask xterm to set the position to an arbitrarily large line number, e.g., tput cup 9999 0 (assuming that you have a window smaller than 10 thousand lines, disregarding scrollback). Because the string will not change as a side-effect of resizing the window, you can ...

I've figured it out, it'll work fine if I launch konsole with dbus-launch konsole like als suggested in this post:Why can't I run Gnome apps over remote SSH session?

However: by way of background, xterm receives X events (which you can see using xev), and handles those in different ways: for controlinsert, xterm sees the events for the control- and insert-keys, and constructs a sequence of ...

It is not necessary to modify the xterm translations resources to copy data to/from Firefox, unless you prefer to use the keyboard to help with the process. Since 2006 xterm has a feature selectToClipboard which lets you switch between the PRIMARY selection (standard) and CLIPBOARD (Firefox, etc).

Some of the comments, etc., are not accurate. By the way, the description of X resources is in the X(7) manual page, in the section titled Resources. That's the best place to start reading, and there's little point in repeating it here. Here's some points overlooked: resource names are case-sensitive: XTerm is not the same as Xterm is not the same as ...
