I assume you haven't set TERM & friends in mint.cnf, just in .profile or
a similar file. This won't help bash, as $TERM has to be set /before/
bash is run, because only then it will evaluate $TERM itself to set key
bindings and so forth.

So, as you say, up/down keys don't work on your Falcon, but $TERM is set
to atari/st52 or something similar. OK, now enter

exec bash

This will replace the running bash with a new one, which gets a
correctly set $TERM on startup. The cursor keys should now work as

To make that work permanently, let MiNT set $TERM to st52 in mint.cnf

setenv TERM st52
