- Subject: TERM problems
I want to use cygwin as my terminal program replacement, and all was
I have a script which connects via ssh to the server I want to use, but
before doing so sets TERM=vt100
Now, mutt and slrn don't behave properly, with messed up displays, and
arrow keys as "unkown command" in mutt.
SO I made the following structre on the remote machine where mutt is
where I copied the cygwin file from the local cygwin installation
I set TERMINFO=~/terminfo
But I still get "Error initializing terminal". I even tried calling it
.terminfo as in the MAN pages for terminfo (1).
How can I setup the remote terminal (running netbsd) to work correctly
under cygwin? If it's of any importance, I have set my height as 30 and
width as 80 in windows. I am using ksh -l in my cygwin.bat file.
Anyone else have similar problems? Solutions? Many characters don't display
properly either (colours, --> in slrn is some weird "m Bq" instead).
