Due to incompatibilities between w3mimgdisplay and Roxterm I am again on the try to switch to Xterm.
Works so far, but scrolling is a major show-stopper.
To enable scrolling using the mouse-wheel in programs like Vim I had to add these lines to my .Xresources file:
Using that scrolling worked fine in Vim, but instead of scrolling in the plain Xterm it now scrolls through the command history, totally unwanted behavior. Shift+PgUp/PgDown keys have no function in that mode.
Doing a web-search revealed that this should work, so i changed the config file:
Works also (although a bit awkward) in Vim, but in plain Xterm I only get the ^N and ^P characters when using the mouse-wheel.
So I wanted to start that over and removed both, with the end result that I now for a millisecond can see Xterm scrolling up when moving the wheel in that direction, but immediately followed by the output of ^P characters, which of course caused an scroll-down to the last line. At least using Shift+PgUp/PgDown keys work in that mode, but having mouse scrolling would be really nice.
I really could need some help from Xterm users with the proper configuration of scrolling using the mouse-wheel without scrolling through command history.
Thanks in advance.
