F-keys don't work

I've got TN5250 installed on a Debian box, and when I try to use the F 
keys, I get an error that the cursor is in a protected area. What the heck 
is going on and how do I fix it? Right now, I've got a box that *has* to be 
working in the morning, so I just started a Telnet session that *looks* 
like a 5250 emulator, but I'd like to know what I did wrong so I can make 
it work with TN5250.

Re: F-keys don't work

Can you run xt5250? It comes with tn5250, I think.

Dunno. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.

Guidelines for LINUX5250 mailing list

Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the LINUX5250
Mailing List.

Answers to common questions, including installation issues for FreeBSD,
Linux and Windows are included in the documentation in the README file
in the source tarball, the manual included with the Windows installer,
and the other documentation found on our web site at

Answers to other questions which may have already been asked are available in
the linux5250 email list archive, which is available at
http://archive.midrange.com/linux5250/

Keep to the subject.  The topic of the list is the Linux Tn5250
Emulation project.   (Though, the name "Linux" is a misnomer, since
the software will work in Microsoft Windows and any modern Unix or
Unix-like operating system)

free to argue the facts, but no personal attacks will be tolerated.

The official language of the LINUX5250 Mailing List is English.

Do not post personal messages.  Please use direct E-Mail.  This list is
international in scope and personal messages just end up costing money.

Re: F-keys don't work

Thanks. That, it appears, will work. Now all I have to do is fix the display
issue so the text isn't so tiny when the window is full-screened. :-) I
think I have that part figured out, just not on that particular machine.

xt5250 TINY window

I thought I knew how to fix this, but obviously I don't, since I'm  
emailing here... :-)

I have a Debian Lenny box that I'm trying to use for an AS/400  
terminal using TN5250/xt5250. Unfortunately, neither one is usable  
right now. The TN5250 won't work with the Function keys and xt5250  
just gives me a SMALL window with even smaller text.

I remember something about changing the font, but I don't recall how  
to do that. Could someone post an example and instructions on how to  
do that, or point me to how? I *did* Google, but sometimes my  
Google-Fu stinks. :-(

Thanks...

Re: xt5250 TINY window

Hmmm...  I don't have an X11 system in front of me to test, but I think 
it's shift-right-click in the xt5250 window?  Or maybe it's 
ctrl-right-click?  (or ctrl-left click?  Something like that...  you'll 
figure it out with a few combinations)

Anyway, you'll get a screen where you can choose between different sizes 
(big, medium, small, tiny) and you can pick a larger one.

Alternately, you can change the font by specifying the font_80 or 
font_132 keywords in your .tn5250rc file.

Regarding keyboard mapping...   getting terminal-based keyboard mapping 
to work is not trivial, and varies from system to system and terminal to 
terminal. I'm not familiar with Debian, and am not in a good position to 
help you with that.

But, basically, you need to set up your terminal to send unique escape 
sequences for all of the keys.  I don't know how Debian deals with this, 
but there's an example us5250.map and uk5250.map files in the Linux 
directory of the distro that should give you a starting point. On other 
Linux systems, you use loadkeys to load the map.

Secondly, your termcap/terminfo (whichever you use) must understand the 
escape sequences you're sending.  It must recognize that the sequence 
from loadkeys results in a particular function key (or whatever) being 
pressed. That's how the system recognizes your function key.  If the 
system recognizes them, tn5250 should too.

It gets more tricky when you don't use the console as your terminal, but 
instead use a terminal program or X11 terminal program, since these

Re: xt5250 TINY window

  John,

     I'm using xt5250 on a Kubuntu box and the way I do it is to start 
an xt5250 session and then hold down the left control key and right 
click the mouse in the xt5250 window (hold down the mouse button!).  
Then select a font size.

Hope that helps!
Benny

'Preciate it. I'll give it a shot. I'm trying to set this up so that a non-
Linux user will be able to "just use it." :-) Sneaking Linux in the back 
door, so to speak. ;-)

lp5250 and "bypass code"

Does anyone here know what a "bypass code" is?  Or how to implement it
on lp5250d for windows?
