[SOLVED] vim status line invisible/wrapped in terminal unless I resize

Hi all,
Whenever I open a file in Vim within a terminal (urxvt, Terminator, xterm) the status line at the very bottom is either invisible or wrapped onto a new line (ie "bot" or "All" will span a line) until I manually resize the window by dragging an edge - this seems to fix the issue (and Vim continues to display correctly even if I continue resizing) .  I tried changing the window geometries (in .Xresources for urxvt, and in terminator via --geoemtry) without luck.  Changing fonts (type, size) doesn't help either.
I'm running Openbox on a recent Retina MacBook Pro with nVidia drivers, with infinality-bundle installed.
The same behavior occurs under Awesome, and I tried various Openbox themes, all with the same result.   So, perhaps its a bash or nVidia issue.
gVim works perfectly though.
Any thoughts?

The status line - the very bottom line - is either (1) below the visible portion of the terminal window - and remains so even if I page down repeatedly (urxvt) - or (2) is visible but the text appearing on it, like "bot" or "all" that are normally visible on the lower right corner, will wrap around (Terminator).  That is, I'll see "b" on the bottom right corner and then "ot" on the bottom left but a line lower.  In either case, if I manually resize the terminal window, it "catches up" and all appears correctly.
Update: when running Vim without opening a file (just "vim" from the command line), in Terminator ALL of the visible text from the startup text is wrapped (ie "Vim is open source and freely distributable" wraps onto a second line).  In urvxt, that text appears normally but the status line is not visible.  In both cases, a window resizes corrects the display.
Very strange.

  • [SOLVED] `Vim/Gvim: set mouse=a works only in Gvim?

    I'm diving into the world of (g)vim this weekend and although I'm starting to get the hang of things, I seem to be having a problem with the mouse functionality.  I have set mouse=a specified in my .vimrc and gvim respects it, but when I run vi in a terminal session (urxvt) I have to explicitly type :set mouse=a in ex mode before it will work.  Am I missing something?
    Here's what I've got in my .vimrc (linked also ~/.gvimrc) so far:
    " (G)vim settings
    set nocompatible " use gVim defaults
    colorscheme wombat " define syntax color scheme
    syntax on " enable syntax highlighting
    set mouse=a " make sure mouse is used in all cases.
    set backspace=2 " full backspacing capabilities
    set nocindent " set C style indenting off
    set cmdheight=2 " command line height
    set ignorecase " ignore case in search patterns
    set laststatus=2 " occasions to show status line, 2=always.
    set ruler " ruler display in status line
    set showmode " show mode at bottom of screen
    set number " toggle line numbers
    set nobackup " disable backup files (filename~)
    set hlsearch " highlight all search results
    set showmatch " show matching brackets (),{},[]
    " Gvim Settings
    set guioptions-=T " disable toolbar icons
    set guifont=Consolas\ 8 " backslash any spaces
    SOLVED: Silly me I was running 'vi' which has no X support... pacman -S vim fixed it fine.

    I just had an issue with no sound after recent updates.  Not sure it's the same problem you are having. 
    I found I had to open Audio Mixer, select Sound card: HDA Intel PCH (Alsa mixer), Select Controls, check box for Speaker and check box for Headphones.  After doing this I found the Speaker volume was set at minimum (although Master and PCM were already set at maximum).  Adjusted Speaker volume up and I finally had sound again.

  • [SOLVED] VIM: different syntax highlighting for new vs existing file

    I've had this minor nagging issue for a while that I've been trying to figure out, but I just don't know where to look.
    It is most obvious with LaTeX files (*.tex).  When I create a new file with "vim file.tex" it is recognized as a latex file and I get syntax highlighting, but it seems odd, or off.  When I close then reopen the same file, it gets "propper" syntax highlighting.
    I gather that this must be because of the two different mechanisms for matching the syntax type: filename versus content.  When the file is new, vim only uses the extension.  Once there is a latex comand (e.g., "\documentclass{article}") it recognizes it as something else and the highlighting style is different.
    It turns out just by actually elaborating exactly what the problem was, I was able to find the solution.  I looked for how vim recognizes the files, and found two relevant lines in /usr/share/vim/vim73/filetype.vim on lines 2093 and 2094.  Apparently the .tex filetype is not the same as .latex and others.  I changed it so it was, and I got the desired behavior.
    I thought about just not posting this - but it may be useful for others.

    You're right about it being overridden.  This change should be able to be placed in ~/.vimrc though.
    Well  that was foolish - I should have read the comments right below in that file.  It says exactly how to set it in vimrc.  I've now added the following to my ~/.vimrc and this is completely solved without modifying the /usr/... file.
    let g:tex_flavor = "tex"

  • Can ichat set my status to invisible as soon as i log on?

    Is there a way to automatically set my status as invisible or away when I first logon to ichat?

    With iChat Open go to the Preferences > General Section.
    Untick the item about Changing the Login to Available on Start up.
    In the Accounts preferences untick the Box (whilst logged out) that says Login Automatically (Account Info tab)
    Now when you start iChat it will not log in a Buddy List.
    You can then set Statuses and such and manually log them in.
    Alternatively you can use the Preferences > General section to show the Status iocn (Menu Bar icon)
    You can then use this iCon to Login the front most Buddy list with the status you want.
    I saw a post recently about also opening iChat with a modifier key but I cannot remember which one it was.

  • How to use another panels in status line

    Hi Everyone:
    Can anybody tell me how can i use another panels in the
    Console's status line, I'm using the message line but i need to
    show the user's name and Date-Tiem in another section of the
    status line and not in display controls as i'm already doing it.

    Do you really need a JSF component for that? You can use h:panelGroup and some JS. But a simple div with some JS is also sufficient.

  • Status Line in Web Forms

    I am using the static implementation of forms. I have specified
    a console window in the forms property. I cannot see the status

    the Web form in a new frame I got the status line but it was
    always set to "Warning: Applet Window".
    I like 6.0 implementation of showing the form in the same frame
    but the messages in the status line is very important to my

    I tries adding "USESDI=YES" parameter to the static HTML, did
    not make any difference. The client side looks like doing MDI

  • How to Disable status line

    I want to hide status line containing 'Record 1/1' , OSC. But i want to display status line that shows 'Transaction commited' etc.
    How can i disable it?

    In order to suppress information on the status line, you must hide the entire
    console. To hide the console, set the Console Window property to <NULL> in the Form Module Properties sheet. The Console Window
    property cannot be altered programmatically at runtime.
    The console contains the status line and the message line. If the console is not displayed, then NO messages on the message line will be displayed either. All Oracle Forms Runform messages and custom messages would have to be displayed using alerts by coding the ON-ERROR and ON-MESSAGE triggers.

  • Frm messages only in status line not as pop-up

    How can I tell forms to display the frm-messages like

    only in the status line without any pop-up window which I have to confirm?

    I don't want to send my own messages.
    My thread is about automatic generated Forms messages.
    On my Deveplopement-Workstation, the FRM-40406 message text only appears in
    the status line. That's ok.
    On the server IAS 9.0.4 the message appears on the status line, but also as pop-up message.
    Can I configure this anywhere on the server?

  • Replace SAP logo in status line in the new Signature Design (SAPgui 7.10)

    with SAPgui 7.10 there is a new desing available, the Signature Design. Recently a customer asked me, if it is possible to replace the small SAP logo in the middle of the status line (at the bottom of the SAP window) with another image.
    I don't know this, has anyone an answer for me?

    I doubt so (although I don´t know 100 %).
    The bottom SAP image has the same functionality as before in the right upper corner (you can doubleclick it to send support messages to SolMan system). You couldn´t change the right upper corner image.

  • Suppress Message / Clear Status line

    Hello Gurus,
    I am using function module MB_PHYSICAL_INVENTORY in a RF-transaction. There I am collecting all return messages into an itab to show a protocol in a small popup.
    The problem is, after completition of the posting a message (type S) is shown in status line (e.g. "Diffs in phys. inv. doc. 240307242 posted with m. doc. 3702433524").
    Is it possible to suppress this message somehow or is there a way to clear the status line manually (w/o displaying another message)?
    Help is much appreciated,
    PS: Points will be rewarded for helpful answers!

    The complete process is using three function modules. The first is the above mentioned MB_PHYSICAL_INVENTORY. Even if this function module was executed successful (BLING message appears on the status line), the other two could have run incorrect.
    For Example:
    FM 1 correct (Status message)
    FM 2 correct
    FM 3 ERROR
    So I want to display the user a complete log of the results of all function modules and the user shouldn't think 'Everything was fine!' because of the message of the first FM.
    I hope I could clarify my problem.

  • Web form status line size

    are there any way to maximize the font of the status line appears in the form??

    If it is already there, then I'm assuming that you'll have data at a particular intersection. (if that is correct) then use @RETURN i
    if (division->some member <> #Missing)
    Return the message you want to display
    continue the calc
    end if

  • Mail.app reading HTML messages - status line?

    Is there a status line or other field that displays the contents of an embedded link in HTML messages?
    If so, where is it, and how does one enable it?
    To be precise, what I am looking for is the equivalent to the status line that Safari displays at the bottom of a browser window where the user can view the contents of a link when the cursor is hovering over a picture or text which is a hyperlink to another document or website.
    Why I'm looking for this, is so that when reading eMail with hypertext links (HTML eMail) the destination of the link would be visible, so if someone sends me phishing email with a link that says "https://safeharbor.ebay.com/" and the actual html (which can be seen by using "View => Message => Raw Source") says something like[email protected] mple.com" it is obvious that I shouldn't click on the link. Likewise, when load-pictures is off, I can hover the cursor over the graphic and see whether the graphic is just an image (http://www.site.com/picture.jpg), or is an image with a tracker attached (http://www.site.com/cgi-bin/showpic?email=[email protected]&image=picture.jpg).
    I was hoping this would be in the new Mail.app for leopard since creating HTML mail was available, at least in limited form, and Phishing is NOT a new problem. Also, since Mail.app uses the safari rendering engine to display HTML in eMail, it make sense that it could also display link info.
    SO, does it exist? Is there some magic key combination or hidden (well hidden) menu or preference option to set to see this simple link information? I know I can do it by viewing the raw source, but that is a royal pain in the a** to read all the gobbletygook, html, css, javascript, etc. that shows up in html pages. And maybe a good percentage of Apple users don't know how to read HTML anyway, although most do know what a URL looks like.

    How does one go back and EDIT a post to fix a typo, or other grammatical or formatting error?
