What is the rigth mouse setting to make the mouse to work in/with Linux MC file manager?
MC is fast over absolute - even over very slow connections. Operating it with mouse makes it even faster.
I have noticed this works in Xmanagers Xterm, so I am almost sure that there must a setting for Absolute, too...

Markku,

The option is under Options->Properties->VTOptions under 'Mousing'. Choose 'allow remote mouse' so Absolute can do it. You may also need to choose the 'xterm' terminal type so MC knows that Absolute can do it.

Thanks Brian.
I had tried all combinations and could not make it to work, because I did not realize to _save_ the profile after the mode change to xterm+remote mousing and restart the connection with the new profile. Only then the Linux session will identify the capabilities of the terminal emulator and MC takes over the capabilities of the session. Quite obvious actually - but perhaps a pop-up note could/should appear after the mode change asking the user to save the profile and restart the connection. - just my 2c suggestion.
