that's working for me (Debian).

Is this using the FreeBSD port, or self-compiled?

Using the port.

In either case, it helps to know the version (major, minor, patchdate)
which you can get using "tic -V".

$ tic -V

The "-v" (verbose) option won't show where it puts the files, but "tic -D"
shows the directory it'll use for output.  tic will only create the last
directory-leaf (terminfo) and its immediate children, so if


exists and is writable, then this should be created:


It shows /usr/local/share/misc/terminfo for some reason, as if -o isn't supplied:

$ tic -x -D -o /usr/ports/x11/kitty/work-py36/stage/usr/local/lib/kitty/terminfo terminfo/kitty.terminfo
tic: /usr/local/share/misc/terminfo (no permission)
