Looking at kitty's source, it appears that
kitty's install copies a compiled binary terminfo
rather than using the tic utility.
As such, it's not an ncurses bug.

  setupterm doesn't find terminfo entry in non-standard database

Status in ncurses package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My terminal emulator (Kitty) installs its terminfo entry to:


  But it also registers /usr/local/lib/kitty/terminfo/ as a terminfo

  % infocmp -D

  I use tmux, which uses setupterm:

  setupterm sets an error code unless I symlink the terminfo def to a
  traditional location:

  sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/kitty/terminfo/x/xterm-kitty

  This stops the problem. setupterm is presumably not searching all
  database locations.

  I am not the developer of tmux, he directed me here to log the issue.

  See https://github.com/tmux/tmux/issues/1433 for the original bug
