Linux console screen size problem

Posted by Admin on 09-Feb-2007 10:24

On linux console progress only uses the upper left hand corner. How do we get it to use the entire screen. It works fine on UNIX. Is it a PROTERMCAP issue or a LINUX setting? SUSE LINUX - Progress 9.1E04.

I know this is an old question.... but I have a client that's trying to use the console and is having the same problem.    Does anyone know the solution?

What is the value of the $TERM environment variable?

The TERM is set to Linux

And this is OE 11.5

Do this and try again:

TERM=xterm; export TERM
