Cannot install pydio cells -> arrow keys not working?

Hey guys,

I’m trying to install pydio cells with: cells.exe install on windows and for whatever reason, I can’t seem to use the arrow keys to switch options, I’m always getting at the Browser-based (requires a browser access).

My arrow keys does work elsewhere. I tried with cmd.exe, tried with admin permission, I even tried with powerShell and none of them works.

I’ve tried to feed the param directly ie: cells.install --bind myip:myport to bypass the key issue but I’m still stuck with some options and I can’t change it.

Is there another way to install without relying on cmd arrow keys?


Try to use “k”, “L” keys instead of arrow keys

that did the trick! thanks.

What’s the explanation on that? lol and maybe this should be documented as a known issue or something?

Hello @jbisson

It seems that our cli lib behaves on windows with the VIM shortcuts, on our website we have added a clue about this issue on the windows installation guide, but we should also have one on the command line when you are on windows, I’ll open a ticket for this.
