Hi Everyone

I was hoping to design an application(s) that would not need X. I
figured that the mouse mask would depend on X but now I am starting to
wonder how many parts do. So for instance the window borders do not seem
to be displaying right, they are back to ascii text.

I brought down X with CTRL + ALT + F1 and ran the same programs. I also
opened mlterm which displayed them right with X.  rtvm-unicode won't
start without X.

Am I doing something wrong? is there any documentation I have missed ?

Not that I know. The last time I ran a program like that, it would draw the line chars just well. Perhaps something is brohkenz with your termcap or console-tools installation. How do you draw the window borders? can you post a link to your test pgm?

I believe the mouse input can be got with gpm in the text terminal. Or perhaps that was just for copy&paste.. Not sure tho if that still exists/works..
oh, there:
