I'm a bit stuck trying to figure out why colors aren't working for me on FreeBSD (where I understand that termcap is used rather than terminfo).
Things should be set correctly: $ echo $TERM xterm $ tput Co pa 8 64 I've also tried setting $TERM to xterm-256color $ echo $TERM xterm-256color $ tput Co pa 256 32767 Attempting to set the color in mutt with color status blue white works as expected on my Linux boxes but does nothing on my FreeBSD box. Colors work fine in vim and weechat. Likewise $ tput AF 4; echo hello ; tput me works, as does $ printf '\e[31mHello\e[0m' So the terminal is doing color as expected, but somehow mutt/neomutt doesn't seem to recognize that. Is there some trick that I've missed for getting mutt/neomutt to play well with termcap/FreeBSD? Thanks, -tim
