Tips and Tricks
- Use with abduco
- Using a4 with abduco is very efficient. You can have a4 running for days, weeks, months, and disconnect and reconnect as needed. It can be helpful to setup an alias for this, for example:
alias a4.abduco="abduco -A a4 a4 $@"
- 24bit colors
- If you're not seeing
COLORTERM=truecolor (case sensitive) in the underlying
terminal and restart a4.
- Which TERM should I use?
- In general, just use whatever the underlying terminal defaults
to. If there's any question, use
- Setting the terminal title for colorrules
- Mouse clicks spitting out characters
instead of taking actions
- There's a
error in the
xterm-256color file installed by some
Linux distros that causes the mouse to behave incorrectly. Run this
command to put a local, patched copy of the file in place for your
infocmp xterm-256color | sed -E 's/(kmous=\\E\[)</\1M/' | tic -o ~/.terminfo -
