xfce4's terminal settings reflect an xterm. rxvt and other

Does anybody have a proper working config for me? Cold help a lot.
not sure I undestand, but

I use two methods shift-pageup and ctrl-x and then arrows keys, my magic
key is ctrl-x not ctrl-a
Well... when I do that I can scroll up, but just within he

That means I leave screen's screen, where the current screen-window's
text is rolling.

If I understand you correctly, you want some way to easily scroll *inside* of screen. AFAIK the easiest way to do this is to use the "copy" command, by default 'ctrl-a ['. I guess that if you want to use pageup to scroll, you could bind it using the appropriately named "bind" command in your .screenrc file.


ctrl-a esc is what I use
