Completion sequence

If I got mc(1) right this should work, but it doesn't:

Escape sequences may be defined in ~/.config/mc/ini under the [terminal:foo-term] section. F9 > Options > Learn keys provides a limited interface to these settings.

To change the completion key (Alt+Tab by default), find the desired escape sequence through cat or other means, and add it to the complete key. For example:

Just pointing out that here, and at the time of writing, the completion key is, by default, Esc+Tab. Regid (talk) 03:15, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Mouse support with unusual TERM

For some terminal definitions like st, st-256color, tmux, and tmux-256color, mouse support doesn't work and has to be forced with mc -x.

[1] seems to suggest it checks for kmous/smcup/rmcup, but these are present in all the above.

[2] has a few hardcoded entries, but AFAIK, those are for key mappings. -- Alad (talk) 15:44, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
