Any chance of getting this into FC5? Rolling through 25000 lines of scrollback
to do a copy and paste is awful.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-02 18:43:06 UTC
Feature requests like this are much better tracked upstream in
But in this particular case, I think you should just use the existing "script"

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2006-08-04 18:59:44 UTC
Can you give an example of this script command to do this... :)

Reported upstream.

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2006-08-04 21:11:40 UTC
Ugh. Sorry. I thought you meant gnome-terminal had some kind of scripting
interface, I didn't realise you meant script as in "script".

I can't use script, since I don't know when I want to be logging the terminal
