Hi, I'm sort of new to all of this and I could use some
help. Right now I have Caldera E-Desktop 2.4, video resolution at
1024x768, on a separate partition and I have several releases of the
tn5250 downloaded. The one I installed is the 15.8. I can run
the xt5250 from a terminal window by cd to the directory and then just
typing xt5250. I am having a couple problems with this,
though. First of all, the window is extremely small and if I
enlarge it nothing happens to the size of the text. Secondly, the
control (reset) key won't work, so if I use a wrong function key I can't
reset it. When I try to run the tn5250 I have the same problems as
well as I retain text from previous screens on the current one and
ultimately the tn5250 will no longer work.
My major concern in all of this is that I cannot find documentation on
how to get it actually installed right and configured. Can anyone
give me the installation for a Linux newbie? I've sort of taken it
on myself to get this working properly, if I can't get it working
properly and I have computer knowledge, how could I convince anyone above
me that Linux may be a viable solution for the future? I am
satisfied with Linux so far and see great things ahead for it. Any
help is greatly appreciated.
