Subject: [gentoo-user] konsole doesn't always seem to refresh
Date: Wed, 26 Sep 2007 19:44:59
1 I've been having a weird an inconsistent issue with konsole. Suppose
2 I'm in a directory with a lot of files, like my mp3 folder. Then
3 suppose I want to play one with, say, mplayer. So I type
5 rpbarlow@lappy786 /mnt/booty/data/music $ mplayer Yo
7 and I hit tab to get it to do some completion. The weird thing is that
8 I often will hear the beep, signifying that it needs me to type the next
9 character(s) to further specify the file, but it won't show what it has
10 typed so far. In other words, bash has already written things out to
11 stdout, but I still see
13 rpbarlow@lappy786 /mnt/booty/data/music $ mplayer Yo
15 in konsole. This doesn't happen if I am in one of the Atl-Fn terminals,
16 which leads me to believe it's a konsole issue.
18 Another time I see this behavior is after a program is done it doesn't
19 always give me back the prompt,
21 rpbarlow@lappy786 /mnt/booty/data/music $
23 If I type something all of a sudden it shows up. It seems like konsole
24 isn't flushing its output buffers when it should. Is this something I
25 can configure better, or a bug, or what?
