Subject description: libqtermwidget stuff needs /usr/local/share not /usr/share.
 

I installed the qterminal pet with the package manager in the fatdog control panel... Had a severe problem with function keys, cursor control keys etc not being recognized...
Code:
qterminal --help
wrote:

Feature requests, bug reports etc please send to: <petr@scribus.info>


petr responded by asking how to find the fatdog package...

Then a couple days later informed me that:
<petr@scribus.info> wrote:
ah-ha!

got it. Fatdog's qterminal package is not built correctly.

Its libqtermwidget parts are built to use /usr/local prefix instead of /usr

Hotfix:
cd /usr/local/share
ln -s /usr/share/qtermwidget

then it works much better

Personally I find fatdog world quite confusing. Eg. I'm not able to find
any contact to qterminal packager to consult the bugfix.

Anyway - please try it with the symlink fix and let me know your results.


Well I don't have any idea how to find/contact the fatdog packager for qterminal either...
{unless this post accomplishes that Twisted Evil }

But I'm using this forum post to inform other fatdog users of both the problem and the fix... And that the "fix" in the form of

Code:
ln -s /usr/share/qtermwidget /usr/local/share/qtermwidget
worked for me...

Well I've been wrestling with various Linux for years. And one thing I've learned is that If I understand a problem, and I care about it enough, I need to be relentless looking for a solution. This time I got lucky in that the --help text actually pointed at someone who works on the project'a code. And the really amazing part wasn't even that the email address was still valid, but that the person at the other end cared about it enough to spend time on it, upon just one informal bug report. Confused Very Happy When does that happen Question

The part I might deserve credit for was that as soon as I tested the fix he provided, I shared it with the rest of the fatdog community.
