Terminal problem - 03-21-2006 , 06:39 AM
I've installed Ingres 2006 on a CentOS box but I cannot work properly
form interfaces (accessdb, cbf, catalogdb and so on) because the cursor
remain in browse mode and there is no way to switch to the "command
mode" for "create", "access" or what else related to the form;
furthermore, when the form is just started, the cursor is at bottom in
"command mode" and I can choose (for example, in case of accessdb)
"database", but in the following forms only PF2 and PF3 keys are usable,
if I go back to the first form the "command mode" is working again.
I tried to use "xmodmap mykeys" where mykeys contains:
keycode 67 = F1 KP_F1
keycode 68 = F2 KP_F2
keycode 69 = F3 KP_F3
keycode 70 = F4 KP_F4
but still id doesn't work, and also TERM=linux and vt100 have been tryed
Have anybody any suggestions for this issue?
Thanks very much,

I think there are two Solution for Issue related to accesing the
options from form based commands. One is to provide termcap file
respective to the terminal type selected ( viz vt100,vt220 etc) which
has proper mapping included for the keys that you will be using. I think
this option is little difficult. Because I had the same issue for ingres
on linux platform.
Second option is to use command mode option. If you are in browse mode,
the to switch to command mode option folllow following steps:
Press Esc key
Then Press shift + o + p
This will lead the cursor to move to command mode option.
This works on linux, try it on your installation.
Hope this will help you
