#9258 closed bug (duplicate)

Terminal colors/colours don't work correctly.

Reported by: xray7224 Owned by: siarzhuk
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Terminal Version: R1/alpha4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: #6510 Blocking:
Platform: All



I have been using tmux, irssi and identicurse (a curses based client) via ssh and found that the colours often appear where they're not suppose to (spilling over from other areas). I have attached a screenshot to show this. Most notably this occurs in the irssi input box and occasionly sometimes the identicurse app will give text a white background (when the program isn't). I can varify using other terminals on other OS's don't do this and the problem is definitly in the haiku terminal (or library it uses).

This bug is around in alpha 4.1.

(check attached pictures to see it occuring)

Just curious, could you please try to redefine environment variable TERM to xterm-color and repeat your tests?

Yes, I confirm that this is known problem and I have it on my TODO list. :-|
