Mouse don't work in neovim on terminal
Closed, WontfixPublic


Testes on mate-terminal, gnome-terminal, tilix, terminator and roxterminal.

Only kitty works.

To reproduce:
Install neovim, open it (nvim) and run :set mouse=a

Tested in Mint, Ubuntu, Arch with sames terminals and init.vim and works.

Like I said in forum, it's probably the vte library fault.

Using nvim in tmux works fine though

Can you explain explicitly what the mouse support is expected to provide in terms of functionality?

I believe it's a known issue, scrolling in nvim triggers an E73 tag stack empty error, seems to be due to an improper value of $TERM

There are tons of bug reports, this is one of them:

this doesn't happen with st or kitty though

Seems more like an issue with those respective projects and not explicitly Solus then. You can always change your TERM.
