Re: VI editor in Gnome Terminal leaves text remnants on scroll



Around about 28/03/06 04:28, Khoa Ton typed ...
That being the case /bin/vi is the more appropriate editor to use as root.
Any hints as to how to workaround the text remnant problem with /bin/vi
as root on Gnome Terminal?

  OK, firstly which versions of gnome-terminal and vim?

  Does this fail only for root, or is it for all users?

  Please try:

vi -U NONE -u NONE thefileinquestion

.. and see if it still occurs. This runs vim with no config. files which, if it works, might indicate a funny setting somewhere as opposed to a code bug.


  FWIW, it doesn't fail for me as a normal user on FC3 with vim 6.4.
