I launch some text mode program (which accepts mouse input, like MC...) in text terminal and want to be able to use my mouse.

Is there some command I should enter to enable mouse support in this text terminals?

1 Answer 1

sudo apt-get install gpm

and reboot

and then it will work

As of 12.04.3 there is no need to reboot.

  • "service gpm start" may be necessary.
