    A question on mouse scrolling


    Hi folks,

    FC4
    Nano

    Please advise how to make mouse scroll on "nano". Mouse_support_enable only allows dropping the cursor at any place on the document highlighting the text but not scrolling.

    Mouse scrolling works on this box and other documents as well.

    So you want to scroll files you open with Nano? If there is a way to do it I'm not aware of it. Most of the command line editors I've used require you use the arrow keys to maneuver up and down the file.

    Hi Dapper Dan,

    Yes. I wonder how kedit/text editor on KDE can do it. Nano/vi/pico etc. can't do scrolling.

    I guess it's because kedit, gedit and such are editors while in xwindows and the others aren't. Now that I think about it, I don't think your mouse is even functional outside of 'X.' I never really thought about it since moving up and down a file in vi, nano, joe etc. has really become second nature to me with the arrow keys. Maybe it's just something you have to get used to.
