Hi Micah,

        Thank you very much for your answer.

I have tried many different terminals: vt100, xterm, linux, ansi
having the definitions in the /etc/termcap like:
vt100|vt100-am|dec vt100 (w/advanced video):\
        :nd=\E[C:rc=\E8:rs=\E>\E[?3l\E[?4l\E[?5l\E[?7h\E[?8h:\        \E[0%?%p1%p6%|%t;1%;%?%p2%t;4%;%?%p1%p3%|%t;7%;%?%p4%t;5%;m%?%p9%t\016%e\017%;$<2>:\

To do so I simply type:

export TERM=vt100

Each time I invoke screen -r I get:
Cannot find termcap entry for 'vt100'

Maybe some config file is missing.

Best Regards
