• Re: ANSI in Ubuntu termin

    You can change your terminal emulation most likely to ansi or something like that, but I think you'll wind up with traditional cli applications maybe not displaying correctly.

    I wonder... if you have more than one terminal emulator, like say both lxterminal and gnome-terminal, could you change only one of them to be ansi
    and leave the other one as is. Then, when you want to see ansi, you use terminal package a, and otherwise use b.

    I'm not sure if the character encoding comes from the actual terminal
    emulator itself or if it's something presented from within the tty.

    If the former, then yeah, should work great.

    If the latter, maybe we could just write a script to switch character
    encoding from one thing to another on the fly.
