I open a subshell session using M + x shell and I create a Nuxt.js application using: yarn create nuxt-app myproject.

During the installation process, I am suggested which packages/frameworks/libraries/tools to use for my development process as shown on this screenshot:

On Ubuntu's Terminal I just press the arrows down or up to select what I want. But with the subshell session these arrows do not work. How to achieve my goal?

    What exactly is this "subshell session" you're talking about? M-x on its own doesn't tell what command you've invoked. Have you executed M-x shell or something else?

  • Sorry, I did a mistake, I meant as you said M-x shell @wasamasa Dec 16 '18 at 18:15

M-x shell starts a shell inside a so-called dumb terminal. It can send and display text, but that's it. Anything fancy includes extra leg work.

What you'll want to use for the full interactive experience is M-x term. It supports all the bells and whistles of a terminal emulator, at the expense of being far slower than M-x shell.
