Mousewheel/Scrolling in Screen
Okay, I have a somewhat productive SSH setup at work using PuttyCM to SSH to all of my work Linux servers. I also use it SSH to my home servers. I use byobu on my home sessions and I love it.
However, it isn't perfect and this lack is preventing me from installing it on every server I use. I really want to install byobu on all of my work servers but I often need to scroll around in the input and having used byobu for some time now I can tell you that this aspect of screen is not very productive at all.
To scroll or page at all requires that you first press F7 and then you can use page-up/page-down or use the cursor keys but, at least on my setup, I can't select anything that isn't on the current screen and I can't scroll the screen without losing what was previously selected. The mouse wheel doesn't work even after pressing F7 (or before).
So what I want to know is if there is a way that I can have the best of both worlds. Byobu, but with scrolling. What I really want is to be able to use the screen window just like any other xterm window - scroll, page-up/down, cursors, mousewheel everything and all without ever pressing a function key. Just like I would without screen.
Am I out of luck or is there a way? If not, I would suggest it as a feature request to screen since it is the one thing that is keeping this setup from being truly productive.
