Error inside emacs terminal emulator.

Issue #11 wontfix
aldo ridhoni
created an issue

When I run make config, nothing is showing. Then I tried this:

env PKGNAME=package PORT_OPTIONS="-" ALL_OPTIONS="-" dialog4ports

Error opening terminal: eterm-color

Which the workaround is changing the term name.

env PKGNAME=package PORT_OPTIONS="-" ALL_OPTIONS="-" TERM=xterm-256-color D4PASCIILINES=Y dialog4ports

And if I just run dialog or cdialog directly it worked with color and shadow. Can you look at the problem, thank you.

    Dialog same can't work, because without terminfo you can't init terminal(more in man 5 terminfo)

    % env TERM=test dialog --textbox /tmp/somefile 100 80
    Error opening terminal: test.

    I close this ticket, if you think it is wrong, please reopen it.

    Strangely enough the dialog binary is working inside emacs-term without changing $TERM. After following hint from emacswiki, here's how I try to fix it:

    make config dialog finally working, but still without color and shadow. I tried to recompile dialog4ports but still no go. Thank you for answering.
