Hi

Has anyone been using irssi successfully?
my problem is switching windows.
just to mention that when run irssi in debian on virtual box I can do everything, switch windows with the ALT+number key, view and switch windows with the /window command. so I know I'm doing it right.

in gentoo I can't switch windows using ALT+number, tried also ALT+SHIFT+number, ESC+number but none works.
I tried with gnome terminal, urxvt and xterm and it doesn't work with any of them.
the /window command just doesn't work, I try /window goto 1 but nothing happens.


I tried following this guide on irssi and set this in ~/.Xdefaults but it didn't help
Code:

URxvt*eightBitInput:   false
URxvt*metaSendsEscape: true
URxvt*modifier: alt


also tried URxvt*meta8:False in .Xdefaults but didn't help also.

reading many thread I suspect it has something to do with my locale

my $LANG is: en_US.utf8

I've rad many threads,all lot talking about vim and alt key, but couldn't fix.
any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

I use the ESC-1, ESC-2, etc. key sequences in Gentoo/irssi (net-irc/irssi-0.8.15-r1) and it works fine out of the box on gnome-terminal, ssh, and console...

The issue with the /window command not working is kind of worrysome, /window 2 does switch to window 2 just like esc-2 for me... Might be irssi built wrong? I don't know...
