Description

I would like to display more than the one line of console output. I modified the output_lines property both in the ~/config/mc/ini file and through the UI Layout screen, but it has no effect on MC.

The impacted code seems to be in src/filemanager/layout.c, but I don't see why it is not working. I have tried with versions compiled for both OSX (4.8.1.3) and Ubuntu (4.8.1).

See the version info below.

GNU Midnight Commander 4.8.1.3
Built with GLib 2.21.6
Using the ncurses library
With builtin Editor
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm
With internationalization support
With multiple codepages support
Virtual File Systems: cpiofs, tarfs, sfs, extfs, ftpfs, fish
Data types: char: 8; int: 32; long: 32; void *: 32; size_t: 32; off_t: 64;

GNU Midnight Commander 4.8.1
Built with GLib 2.31.20
Using the S-Lang library with terminfo database
With builtin Editor
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm and Linux console
With support for X11 events
With internationalization support
With multiple codepages support
Virtual File Systems: cpiofs, tarfs, sfs, extfs, ext2undelfs, ftpfs, fish
Data types: char: 8; int: 32; long: 32; void *: 32; size_t: 32; off_t: 64;

Marked as minor since this bug is cosmetic.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  1. Try the latest version of mc.
  2. This feature is available only in native Linux and BSD console, not in X terminal emulator (see documentation). Support of terminal emulation requires huge work (possible implementation own internal terminal) and not scheduled.
