Matlab -nojvm console issues after Fedora 6 upgrade


I'm using Matlab 7. When I was running Fedora 5, I got real used to the command line interface, using the "-nojvm" flag, then doing all my coding in Emacs. After upgrading to Fedora 6 (using yum and tracking down all the kernel bugs), I'm having some issues with this.

Mainly, the arrow keys have lost their functionality. Rather than "working", they're giving characters (I think it's their escape sequences? Not sure; that came up in a similar discussion about vi that I searched for). So "up" gives me [A, "down" gives [B, "right" gives [C, and "left" gives [D. Anyway, I'm looking for a way to either fix the keymap or fix the program. The one thing I suppose I could try would be reinstalling matlab, but I always feel as though that's admitting defeat in Linux. And it works flawlessly when I run without the -nojvm flag, so it seems as though it's only the konsole version that's messy.

If anybody has any thoughts, I'd appreciate it.

it might be a difference in the way Konsole is passing the keyboard keypresses. Have you tried running it in an xterm or rxvt or similar instead of Konsole?


keymaps, konsole, matlab
