You can install rlwrap if you don't have it installed yet and then call vmd as:
rlwrap vmd -disp text

Hope this helps,

Assunto: vmd-l: can't use arrow key in vmd -disp text mode

Dear all,

When I open vmd using vmd -disp text, I can’t use arrow key to move the cursor back and forth, or to get command history.

Has anyone met with this problem before and how did you solve it?
