Am i lost?
« on: November 01, 2016, 02:14:50 PM »
 :) Hi here... long time since i wrote something here last.

Well, i just recieved a new PI B+, and placed the Picore8 (newest stable) on my uSD card, and booted etc...

After installing nano editor, i was surprised seeing this ::

Quote
tc@box:/mnt/mmcblk0p1$ nano
Error opening terminal: xterm-256color.

Is this version supposed to run on a screen, and not by default headless ?

I have been surfing around the forums here, but limited information is to find i think ?

Anybody care to explain a bit?

Jesper.

Connecting with putty from a WIN10 machine via SSH opens fine here as expected.

I connect fine from my Linux-laptop with SSH; no problem...
But when i execute nano, it does not execute, but giving me the error instead!

Is it a remote X connection?

No.

Installing : ncurses-terminfo.tcz didi the trick ? - So nano is working now!

Maybee the nano.tcz, should call in this? Otherwise it does not work i think?

Connections using Putty will work fine, from both Linux and Windows environments.

Opening a Terminal window in Linux, and then using ssh to open the connection to a rpi will yield that error.

I'm in the Raspberry Pi gang as well now. Got a RPi3 today.

I used URxvt to ssh into it and got an error message when attempting to run  nano  or  mc .
Code: [Select]
Error opening terminal: rxvt-unicode.

However,  rxvt-unicode  is not provided by  ncurses-terminfo.tcz .

I had to copy
/usr/local/share/terminfo/r/rxvt-unicode
from a Debian install to the RPi and added it to backup.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
