I have been attempting to install Netflix on Mint 13 using apt-get. This runs in a terminal window and goes well until it prompts for me to agree to a licence for a Microsoft component. This is simply a text button for 'Yes' - no alternative, no 'back' button.

The problem is that no matter what I do the text interface in the terminal window does not respond to either mouse or keyboard entries. If I then exit by closing the terminal window (the only way out that I can see) it leaves me with a mess that needs to be cleaned up manually and an aborted installation.

I seem to remember that there is a utility that can be installed to make text windows respond to mouse input but this is something from doing a Linux from scratch build a few years ago.

Any help, comments or suggestions would be welcome.

Tab to highlight the option of your choice, Enter to accept that choice. If there is only one option, you still need to highlight it.
