Some time ago I installed openSUSE 13.2 and I don't remember doing anything special (but maybe my memory fails me). Anyway, when I run Konsole, and then Midnight Commander in it mouse works.

I checked if I did it by using gpm, but it looks no -- gpm service is reported as disabled, and ps ax does not show any gpm running.

On my newly installed openSUSE Tumbleweed I also have KDE3 Konsole, and when I run MC in it mouse clicks are converted to random characters (i.e. I have the effect of random typing on keyboard).

I tried running gpm (program and service) but it didn't change anything. mc -x also didn't do anything. For comparison I ran MC from regular xterm and then mouse works fine.

What am I missing? How to enable mouse in Konsole?
