screen with a simple status line. If I what to scroll, I use Ctrl+a ESC to enter the copy mode and then I can scroll using the keyboard. This works great also with multiple buffers and splits.
My question is: How can I configure screen to use the mouse wheel to scroll?
Note 1: Using the mouse wheel I can scroll inside my terminal, but this doesn't work with multiple buffers and splits at all.
Note 2: The
termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@ solution doesn't help, since it uses the terminal scrolling. This is not compatible with status line, multiple buffers and splits.
The best solution IMHO would be:
- In copy mode mouse wheel used for scrolling, like keyboard arrays do.
- If screen in the normal mode and the mouse wheel event "scroll up" comes in, screen switches to the copy mode and processes the event
- If screen in the copy mode and the mouse wheel event "scroll down" comes in, that hits the bottom, screen leaves the copy mode
- Screen status line is always visible and get refreshed (works already, if scrolling with keyboard)
