I have xrvt running with the screen command, but it flickers every time I press, say the right arrow key. (It flickers white). Any ideas as to why?
Ps. Gnome terminal is hard to set up with 6x13 condensed bitmap fonts...
This is a default screen behaviour (it flashes instead of beeping your pc-speaker).
Try this while running screen: setenv vbell off
Does the problem go away?
Edit /etc/screenrc (and also inputrc if you wish) and turn bell and vbell to be off. This works for me.
