Thanks for the reply but it was a mistype on my part. From what I can gather, I should be using xt5250 and not tn5250. xt5250 however fails to run for me and display a number of errors:

Yes, using xt5250 is preferable as it sets up an xterm for you. Using tn5250 still works. Looking at the errors below it looks like something strange is happening with the xt5250 script. Test this by starting an xterm (you need to use xterm, not some other kind of term like rxterm or gterm or konsole) and then running tn5250 <session-name> inside that xterm (where <session-name> is the name of the session you have defined in $HOME/.tn5250rc or simply use the hostname of the AS/400).

These look like xterm is behaving strangely on your system. Maybe this is an Ubuntu problem - any other Ubuntu users want to check this?

the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
