• syncterm terminfo file

    Does anyone know if there is an "official" terminfo file for syncterm?

    Most (if not all) systems don't have one by default, which causes
    programs to fail when executing them using SyncTERM. I've solved this in
    the past by copying another terminfo file and naming it syncterm. Today,
    I tried using what I thought was the "official" terminfo file for the
    project, but it seems to be slightly off, as when I run programs in
    SyncTERM, some of the rows and things are slightly broken (though it
    mostly works).

    cd /tmp
    wget https://gitlab.synchro.net/main/sbbs/-/raw/master/install/termcap
    -O /tmp/syncterm_terminfo
    sed -i 's/ansi-bbs/syncterm/' /tmp/syncterm_terminfo
    tic -s syncterm_terminfo

    Is there a better terminfo file to use that will make SyncTERM work
    properly?

    Thanks!

    This is a question best asked of the SyncTERM project owner (Deuce) who doesn't regularly read message bases. You can find him in #synchronet at irc.synchro.net much of the time or post an issue/question to syncterm.sf.net.

    Thanks, do you know if syncterm.sf.net is still active? It seems to
    redirect to syncterm.bbsdev.net now (not sure what was there before),
    and I'm not seeing a way to post questions anywhere there...

    Yes, see the links on that page with the text:

    glad he left the toggle in for the under construction version.
    new one looks like a mystic bbs theme.

    Deuce answered this on #synchronet earlier. If you run syncterm with
    just the -T option it'll spit out a tic that can be redirected to a
    file such as syncterm.tic
