I recently upgraded a 10.10 server (headless, EC2) to 11.04 and then to 11.10. Both upgrades seem to have worked, but now my terminal acts differently, particularly concerning output scrolling. I am accessing this server via Terminal on a 11.10 Desktop (GNOME fallback).
- A scroll bar is displayed on the right side of my Terminal, allowing me to scroll back to older output
- Turning the mouse wheel scrolls back to older output
- No scroll bar is visible
- Turning the mouse wheel cycles the current line through my command history (same as UP key)
This is a difficult issue to describe succinctly and I've had no luck finding any information about this. But I've performed the same upgrade several times (10.10->11.10) and the result is always the same concerning Terminal scrolling. Output scrolling is very important to me and something I take for granted - I'm concerned I'll be unable to work effectively on this server until I resolve this.
Update - Problem magically gone after logout/login Well, as I said I've done the same upgrade several times and encountered the same problem. However, in the previous tries I was scared away and gave up. This time I was more determined to finish the upgrade and by simply logging out and back in to the server via SSH the problem has corrected itself.
