Yeah I think so. The idea is to bring up the terminal app
and then immediately telnet or ssh into the sco box. Then
the sco apps will spit out scoansi doodoo and the hacked-up
gnome-terminal will hopefully understand it.
So assuming you are not connecting to an sco machine, what
you are describing is exactly what I'd expect.

Probably I'll install Fedora Core 3 which does install a
/etc/termcap with scoansi stuff included. I assume that is
what you mean?

Are these patches that you applied, or did they come from
