Nah, not Spring, not yet! Not here anyway!

I gather you'd be located in Italy or Spain where Spring starts early?

No, not around the Med, I live near the Northsea.
Wednesday was a rare day. Cold and foggy days are normal now. Spring is not near here neither.

Well, here we have to wait for a decade to see that amount of snow.

Hey musher0

I've been fiddling with mc again.
I just got 256 colors support installing rxvt-unicode-256color package. I took it from debian jessie, as I always do for Tahr.
I had to add libperl5.20 as well. ncurses-term_5.9 was mentionned as dep, but not reported as such by the ppm. I added it anyway because I had to add libncursesw5 before. (I edited a previous message about the 3 links and added this.)
The 256color skins are very nice, dark on white.
Hi foxpup!

That's great news!

Would you have the URL's for those packages, please?
And a screen shot, perhaps? I'm eager to see the result.

TIA

I just take them from the debian packages site.
For rxvt-unicode-256color you find links here: https://packages.debian.org/jessie/rxvt-unicode-256color

I cannot find it in the slackware packages. Maybe the patch is already in the rxvt package from slackware and you just have to enable it in .terminfo? To be honnest, I do not know if I make any sense here. I've not used slack up till now.

Sometimes one can use a deb package in a slackware environment and provide the
missing dependencies if any.

I guessed so: I occasionally installed something from slack or even took a lib from a rpm.

But when I googled about urxvt 256colors I got the impression that rxvt in slackware is compiled differently and the 256 colors just have to be turned on. The deb for 256 colors has the same source as plain rxvt. But as I said, I am not at home in slack.
