You just make the terminal 1 line larger.... some terminals are 24 lines

the terminal and you are in business.

Did not know this, but easily cured. I made a seperate profile under Gnome for TLF. I placed "gnome-terminal--geometry 80x25" at the beginning of the custom command line.

The normal way for tlf is to start autocq with enter or F12.
The NOAUTOCQ was introduced because some folks wanted to switch it off.

Ok thats fine as long as I know that is the way it is supposed to work. But would be nice if "enter" worked with/without autocq.

What is the exact error with ctrl-G? It works fine on my ORION.
It works only when there is info in the spot window...
Does the OMNI qsy when you type in a random qrg? E.g. 3515 should qsy
the rig to 3515.  Does tlf display the TRX frequency? Does ctl-f work?
If it is a specific OMNI problem you are lucky, as I have to prepare my
OMNI for use with hamlib (I want to use it for ALE in PSKmail), so I
will test it with tlf. Earlier versions of tlf have always worked
without problem with my OMNI, I have tested the later versions only with
the ORION...

This is a new install on a new install of Debian Sarge. I decided to try my hand at doing my own logcfg. My mistake was I had "rig_control" instead of "radio_control". Took a while to find my error, but the -v switch showed the errors of my ways. Once corrected all is fine.

I only have 2 last issues that I need to clear up. I occasionally get a "rig link error". I'm going to try and lower the baud rate and see if that will clear the error.

I was under the impression that "rit_clear" would work on the Omni VI, but it doesn't. At least in my case. I'll work on this and see what I find, if anything.

Other than the last 2 issues, I'm hoping to convince the Field Day committee to use TLF for the CW tent. I personnally think it works pretty slick and is a keeper. 73
