In Ubuntu, I want to scroll up while a command is running in my terminal window and generates new output (actually the command running is rspec). I can scroll up, but each time rspec generates a new line of console output it throws me back down to the bottom. Is there a way to scroll all up? I'm using terminator on Linux Mint/Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
I found a possible workaround Terminator homepage says that with
you can turn on "XON/XOFF flow control for terminal output. Being able to pause output by typing ^S and resume it by typing ^Q [...]"
This it not totally what I wanted though, without having to pause the output (and maybe wondering when forgetting to turn it on again), I thought there might be a simple modifier key like shft-alt with mouse wheel scroll-up.. Any better solutions?
