Hi my arm graph is currently black (on black screen). I only can see the graphs if I am marking everything. (See attachments)
Some days ago everything worked as expected.

Hi Sk!d. This would be a problem with Putty - to show the graph arm is drawing a highlighted space character (' '), but Putty evidently fails to render those. I suppose we could provide an option to use asterisks instead but that wouldn't help many users since I don't believe there's a way for arm to know it's being rendered in Putty... :/

Taking a quick pass through old tickets. Unfortunately this one's still relevant, but unactionable. Is there a way of detecting if the user's using Putty?

Hi all, is this relevant any longer? I haven't heard anything more about this in years. I'm unsure if that's because this is no longer an issue in Putty or that folks no longer use it.

At this point I need a couple things for this ticket to be actionable...

  1. Confirmation from a putty user that this is still a problem.
  2. A tip on how to detect if folks are using putty.

For #2 the first step that would help is someone's output from the 'env' command. The answer might be 'we cannot detect it' since this is an ssh client rather than a shell, but perhaps there's something in there we can use.

If anyone putty users run into this and would care to help feel free to reopen!
