Compared to the getty tty's the cursor speed in Gnome Terminal feels slow and sluggish.
By cursor speed I mean if say you were in the middle of a long line at a command prompt and you held down ⬅ - how fast the cursor travels as well and general scrolling etc.
Yes if know you could use Ctrl+a to get to the start of a long line also - but I want to speed up the cursor speed in general.
Is this possible using gnome terminal or possibly using
xset, e.g to slow down mouse pointer speed I typically use
xset m 3/2 5.
If I dump xset, with
xset q I get
Keyboard Control: auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000 XKB indicators: 00: Caps Lock: off 01: Num Lock: off 02: Scroll Lock: off 03: Compose: off 04: Kana: off 05: Sleep: off 06: Suspend: off 07: Mute: off 08: Misc: off 09: Mail: off 10: Charging: off 11: Shift Lock: off 12: Group 2: off 13: Mouse Keys: off auto repeat delay: 500 repeat rate: 33 auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf fadfffefffedffff 9fffffffffffffff fff7ffffffffffff
Does the value of
repeat rate affect terminal cursor speed? otherwise, how can I increase cursor speed of gnome terminal?
