In my GNOME Terminal, I can use my mouse wheel to scroll up and down. But as soon as I start screen in my terminal, 'mouse wheel' does not work.

How can I get my mouse wheel to work in screen?


I've you tried to add the following line to your ~/.screenrc ?

    termcapinfo xterm|xterms|xs ti@:te=\E[2J

It should solve the problem.

  • In addition to this, ensure you have export TERM=xterm set up. The $TERM variable to match this termcapinfo configuration. – Petrus Repo Jan 26 '15 at 8:55
