conman w/ far running: history arrow keys disabled?

Post by torp » Sat Dec 02, 2006 12:31 am

Hello,

I'm new to FAR but I think it is great!

I've discovered conman and I like to run far.exe
inside of conman.exe...

I've noticed that if far is running inside one
conman virtual console, and I then create another
virtual console, the new virtual console does not
allow the up arrow key to cycle through my command
history as I would expect. If I create virtual
consoles in the absence of far, this problem does
not occur...

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I running conman v2.31 on Win2K w/ far v1.70.

Here's my conman config (far is on defaults):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HoopoePG_2x]
"Console1" = hex:11,12,31 ; ctrl + alt + 1
"Console2" = hex:11,12,32 ; ctrl + alt + 2
"Console3" = hex:11,12,33 ; ctrl + alt + 3
"Console4" = hex:11,12,34 ; ctrl + alt + 4
"Console5" = hex:11,12,35 ; ctrl + alt + 5
"Console6" = hex:11,12,36 ; ctrl + alt + 6
"Console7" = hex:11,12,37 ; ctrl + alt + 7
"Console8" = hex:11,12,38 ; ctrl + alt + 8
"Console9" = hex:11,12,39 ; ctrl + alt + 9
"Console10" = hex:11,12,30 ; ctrl + alt + 0
"Console11" = hex:11,12,7a ; ctrl + alt + F11
"Console12" = hex:11,12,7b ; ctrl + alt + F12
"NewConsole" = hex:12,57 ; alt + w
"ComSpec" = hex:12,43 ; alt + c
"Next" = hex:12,27 ; alt + arrow right
"Prev" = hex:12,25 ; alt + arrow left
"VertInc" = hex:11,12,28 ; ctrl + alt + arrow up
"VertDec" = hex:11,12,26 ; ctrl + alt + arrow down
"HorInc" = hex:11,12,27 ; ctrl + alt + arrow right
"HorDec" = hex:11,12,25 ; ctrl + alt + arrow left

"TerminateConsole" = hex:10,12,2e
"AlternativeConsole" = hex:12,41
"k:\\winnt\\nc.bat" = hex:12,54

"CreateInNewEnvironment" = hex:01
"CreateInCurrentDirectory" = hex:01
"AutoCreateNewConsole" = hex:01
"OnlyOneCopy" = hex:02

What do you mean by new virtual console? You create a new console with cmd in the same conman session with Far open in a parallel console?

UPDATE:

I solved the problem by not running cmd
first... Just go strait to conman!

BACKGROUND:

I do this sequence to re-create the problem:

cmd
conman
far
<alt-c>

<alt-c> is my hotkey for a new conman virtual
console. Using the above sequence, <up> no longer
accesses history...
