The demo video on the Kickstarter campaign page shows the user using MC on the Omega 2. I checked the package list and there is no package for MC. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can install MC on an Omega 2.
change the repo to the LEDE, see the last section of this;
I have MC installed and working
Thanks for this thread and tip.
@mark-titley Thanks, that resolved this question perfectly! I appreciate the help!
Can't find the package, what are the exact package name and repo?
It's called "mc".
But when I run it in putty, it comes up with weird characters rather than lines. Is there some setting I need to check?
@Brad-Buskey can you run
opkg info mcand post the output, please?
to get the nice lines, use these putty settings (for windows at least):
@jorgegarciadev look at the link posted by Mark Titley, just under the OP. You have to change where opkg looks for packages.
@Brian-Robbins thanks. I will check my settings in the morning. Not on the computer right now.

Midnight Commander still have a problem with pseudographics even in version 4.8.20.
Trouble is related to utf8 encoding in /etc/mc/skins/default.ini file.
And I dont know why.
But I use little hack with this file. I just replace utf8-encoded pseudographics with latin characters (-|+*).
Looks good enouth.
Something like this (only [Lines] section have to be changed):
horiz = -
vert = |
lefttop = *
righttop = *
leftbottom = *
rightbottom = *
topmiddle = *
bottommiddle = *
leftmiddle = *
rightmiddle = *
cross = +
dhoriz = -
dvert = |
dlefttop = *
drighttop = *
dleftbottom = *
drightbottom = *
dtopmiddle = *
dbottommiddle = *
dleftmiddle = *
drightmiddle = *
