    Hi, I'm new to Linux and these forums, but programmed in C++ on other systems. I discovered several Linux terminal emulators don't render Right to Left languages properly and so as an exercise I writing my own. It based on GtkTextView widget.

    Basically is working, but the shell won't issue prompts because it doesn't think my terminal emulator is actually a terminal (isatty returns false)

    Where would be the right forum to ask this kind of technical question please

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Try moving this to the "Programming / Scripting" forum.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Thanks
    I found the answer for Linux pseudo-terminals now.
    But it won't let me include the link here because I haven't made enough posts yet.
