(another) software request for solaris: X utils, ncurses

Postby cjpinon_solaris » Thu Dec 10, 2015 5:01 pm

Hi Zoli,

For when you find some free time ...

- Would it be possible to install a basic X environment? Basic utilities like xrdb, xlsfonts, xload, etc. (not to mention xclock :-) ) seem to be missing. Perhaps there's a single package that includes such programs. (Or did you not want to install an X environment?)

- Also, although the ncurses libraries seem to be present, the ncurses headers are missing: is there an ncurses development package that could be installed?

Thanks,
C.

Regarding ncurses - the headers and the libraraies are also present.
Please read this link - it might help.

Oh, I had missed this -- thanks for modifying the path!

I see that there are ncurses libraries in /opt/csw/lib, but I'm afraid that I can't find the corresponding headers. :-( Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think that we need the package libncurses_dev for the headers:

https://www.opencsw.org/packages/CSWlibncurses-dev/

This package doesn't seem to be installed:

Code: Select all
$ pkginfo | grep ncurses
application CSWlibncurses5                   libncurses5 - A free software emulation of curses, libncurses.so.5
application CSWlibncursesw5                  libncursesw5 - A free software emulation of curses, libncursesw.so.5
application CSWmutt                          mutt - Metapackage for mutt with ncurses- and slang-interface
application CSWmutt-ncurses                  mutt_ncurses - Mutt mail client with ncurses interface
application CSWncurses                       ncurses - A free software emulation of curses
application CSWterminfo                      terminfo - Database of terminal information, part of ncurses


Thanks,
C.

Yes... you are right - I am sorry.

It is now.

Code: Select all
Installation of <CSWlibncurses-dev> was successful.

Thanks, Zoli. I've recompiled nano, now with UTF-8 support. :-) C.
