    Enable mouse in terminal

    Hello everyone,

    I want to enable the mouse in the system terminal on my Ubuntu server. I don't have X installed and want to use it in The Midnight Commander.

    Re: Enable mouse in terminal

    General Purpose Mouse interface
    This package provides a daemon that captures mouse events when the system
    console is active, and delivers events to applications through a library.

    By default, the daemon provides a 'selection' mode, so that
    cut-and-paste with the mouse works on the console just as it does
    under X.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gpm
    Hope that helps.
