Even though the RSE Target Management Terminal plugin (ver. 3.2.1.R33x_v201106281309-7N7B1BbVJv-SaPEOkhsVVd_C3752) states it supports ANSI - vt102 I found that it doesn't always render some console programs. For example on the debian system it fails to render 'aptitude' and 'nano' to name the few; both render just fine Putty. On that note other applications such as us debian 'dpgk-reconfigure' render just fine.

Is this because 'nano' and 'aptitude' aren't vt102 compatible or is it because the plugin doesn't support fully the vt102? If the latter is the case is there other encoding that would work better with the terminal?

I have tried numerous LANG and TERM settings including ANSI and various flavors of VT102 and the only usable emulation I could find was by running 'export LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1' and 'export TERM=ibmpc' (I had to setup locales and ncurses), unfortunately the emulation is only black and white.

Any suggestion as to the emulation to use? or how to make the plugin render vt102 properly ?

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

setenv TERM ansi

should do the trick since we do an ANSI emulation only (that's slightly less capable than vt100 or vt102). Also, you should use TM 3.3.1 since a couple improvements to Terminal emulation were made in 3.3.

Regarding encodings, the standalone terminal widget assumes ISO-8859-1 by default; bug 244405 is open for making that configurable. If you use the Terminal with RSE, though (using the "SSH ONly" connection type and an "SSH Terminals" subsystem), you can specify your desired encoding in the Connection Properties (right click on the host node).

Thanks
Martin

Hi Martin,

Sorry for the super late reply, I have tired your suggestion and as per the image below things are better but still unusable and badly broken with programs like aptitude and nano. Using version:

Target Management Terminal 3.3.1.201209191030-7N7FF8P7iMmAV6aAkqxqHKN8 org.eclipse.tm.terminal.sdk.feature.group Eclipse TM Project

Any other ideas?

Daniel
