This package contains alternative terminfo definitions for foot, with a number of non-standard capabilities that are not present in the foot terminfo provided by ncurses.

To use, set "term=foot-extra" in foot.ini

See https://codeberg.org/dnkl/foot/issues/695#issuecomment-250521 for a description of these capabilities.

@dreieck

The latest update to the foot-terminfo package already deals with this, but you need to update foot and foot-terminfo before updating ncurses.

@firegem all foot-* AUR packages have been updated now.

Looks like the ncurses update finally rolled out:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
ncurses: /usr/share/terminfo/f/foot exists in filesystem (owned by foot-terminfo)
ncurses: /usr/share/terminfo/f/foot-direct exists in filesystem (owned by foot-terminfo)

@danekl thanks for the hint to the issues. I will then go for ~/.terminfo until this is sorted. As a quick fix I copied it by hand, since it gave me some trouble in my environment (swaywm). Anyhow: Thanks for the package.

@indu this is intentional, to be able to co-exist with the upcoming ncurses release which has its own (less capable) foot terminfo definitions.

See https://codeberg.org/dnkl/foot/issues/671 for background.

But note that this may be reverted, and instead the terminfo files will be renamed (https://codeberg.org/dnkl/foot/issues/695).

The current release installs the terminfo file in /usr/share/foot/terminfo/f/. It should go to /usr/share/terminfo/f/
