Adding rxvt-unicode to termcap on OSX

August 31, 2009

I recently installed rxvt-unicode using MacPorts on OSX. However, when I was doing some terminal related tasks such as using screen I was getting errors such as "Missing termcap entry for rxvt-unicode". After digging through the rxvt-unicode documentation, the following bash command install the appropriate termcap entry.

$ infocmp rxvt-unicode > /tmp/termcap
$ tic /tmp/termcap
