Re: Terminal Corruption



I have gotten this too...
if you can tyope commands / login etc 
excpet it looks AFU then try this
login on the AFU Terminal 
then use the command "reset"
I have found this fixes it well
BTW I put reset in my .bash_logout
so that the tty gets reset when I logout
(unfortunatly it does it in xterms too with su etc...
there should be a better way? relaly I only did it to clear the
screen on logout)
