I'm struggling to run fzf in emacs but cannot figure out whats my problem. When I run fzf - and start typing - text gets mess up, similar to this:

enter image description here I tried run fzf in term, eshell, ansi-term, multi-term modes, with and without --color=no option, its all the same. Does anyone knows what is my problem could be? Thx.

  • eshell doesn't support interactive programs, see this. But I tried ansi-term calling fzf with keybindings (CRTL-T, CTRL-R, ALT-C) and it just works. It maybe related to your .emacs.d

  • @Choma what variable did you set to not use ESHELL and ansi-term instead? Commented Jul 10, 2017 at 11:38

    @DarrylHebbes, I just did M-x ansi-term, it will ask you for a program to run, with /bin/bash as default
