I am trying to get mousewheel scrolling to work in less, within an xterm in cygwin with XMing x-server and fvwm window manager !
I hope I make sense..
I have tried rxvt, urxvt, urxvt-X, aterm, mrxvt without luck !
The only place this works is mintty.. but I won't use a non-X window just to get mouse scrolling in less.
Also, mouse scrolling in vim is working correctly!
Actually, mouse scrolling "works" but it is captured by xterm and not within less (meaning I see the previous commands from the command ilne when I scroll back)
And, last, I have tried a possible solution found online but it didn't work either.
the one where you
echo -e '\e[?1000l' to turn on mouse capturing.
Am I missing something here? or it just doesn't work ?
