Yes it is there with all other types of terminals ...
Is /etc/termcap then deprecated?
: Is it maybe related to some wrong file permissions?
: I changed from ntea to ntsec some while ago.
While writing this, I thought I should check this.
I had the permissions:
drwx------+ 2 admin none 32768 Jul 24 2002 ./
Since I am in the admin-groups I could still access all
files, but unfortunately this caused the problem. After
adding go+rx to all dirs /usr/share/terminfo/v/ and +r to
vt100 it is working fine again.
Has someone a script to fix the permissions of all standard
files to a reasonable value instead of +rx for all dirs and
+r for all files?
