Hi everyone,

I'm trying to use ncurses (5.2) under RH 7.2 and I noticed the colors for TERM=linux change in respect of those in SVr4 or Windows console applications. Color number 1 is red, 4 is blue, 3 is yellow and 6 is cyan. This is specially annoying for compatibility purposes if I have programs that select colors in many places using numeric information.

I saw in ncurses documentation different ways to change the colors. At first, I tried to use can_change_color and init_color from the program with no results. After that, I tried to change terminfo linux.ti file, using initc in order to configure color parameters. But I couldn't solve the problem. I tested several terminfo configurations with no results. At the moment I'm not sure about what's the right way I should follow, and so I'd be very glad if someone could guide me.

Thanks in advance,

Ignasi Villagrasa.
