On a Dell Latitude 3540 laptop, sometimes an open LXTerminal window will "go funky" after suspend/resume, and result in the following behavior:

Corrupted LXTerminal

What seems to happen is,

  • Linefeeds are ignored.
  • Tabs are all different sizes.
  • Typed text does not echo to the terminal at all.

(Here at the first prompt I typed 'ls', then 'cd Downloads', 'ls' again, then 'cd ~' and 'ls'.)

Any idea what is going on, and is there a way to fix this without closing the terminal and re-opening it?

I have Oibaf's drivers installed, but doubt this is purely a video issue.

    Looks like your tty settings got messed up. stty sane should help, also man stty – waltinator Nov 4 at 17:46
  • Thanks Waltinator, that looks like it fixes it. If you could make that an answer, I'll accept it. – rdtsc Nov 4 at 19:28
