More Problems...
Authored by: Telluride on Apr 09, '02 11:19:44PM

Ok, i followed the instructions exactly, but alas still no colors. Perhaps its because i have the translucency effect enabled?? I have the ~/.terminfo/v dir with vt100-color in it, i have the .termcap file, i followed the command instructions for setenv ..." and tic (i have ncurses!)...everything looks fine, but i cannot get colors with ls, or lynx, or emacs....woe is me! Any help would be greatly appreciated

Still Problems...
Authored by: WillyT on Apr 10, '02 10:04:51AM

Well I've got color but I had color before with the lc command. But All the ANSI stuff still seems to be broken. An old ansi file of Bart S. displays fine in xterm but is still garbage in the terminal.. Still NO ansi escapes from the command line. Cut(oh boy) and Paste(!DANGER Will Robinson!) work to the terminal(with NO CR/LF translation). .Apple Terminal still sucks except for transparency. So what if any of this is the hint supposed to fix. or is the terminal broken beyond repair.
Sorry But I'm NOT critizing the hint or author just (And I'm still Grumpy with the time change)

I actually solved a similar problem in a very simple way.

Some terminal apps do not recognise the vt100-color terminal type, and therefor refuse to run.

Change the name of the terminal specified in the two files you are asked to download from vt100-color to vt100, which actually mean that you 'cheat' the terminal into believe it is a vt100, and it is but with colors.

So now pine, vim and everything else works (haven't tried emacs)...
