I'm new to this list and tn5250. I've installed tn5250 and it works great
with one exception.

When I run xt5250 from X11/Gnome the emulators keys behave as expected.
[SHIFT] + [F12] = F24, but when I run tn5250 from a bash shell when I press
the same keys I get no response as if the F24 key doesn't exist.

I've searched the mailing list archives but was unable to find a clear
answer. Most of the solutions involved changing .Xdefaults or XTerm
settings. These solutions wont help when launching tn5250 in a non X11
environment.

Are you running X11 or strictly the linux console? If the latter, there is a console map file called us5250.map included in the tn5250 distribution which you can load using the "loadkeys" command. There a short paragraph describing this in the tn5250 HOWTO (http://www.chowhouse.com/~james/tn5250-HOWTO.pdf) on page 9.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
