    troubles with running nethack

    Hi guys... When I'm trying to run nethack with ./nethack I get this message:
    Code:
    Unknown terminal type: xterm.
    Can anyone help? Thanks

    Try running nethack with xterm instead through gnome-terminal instead (You can find xterm in Dash).
    See if the game runs there.

    Also which nethack packages did you installed?

    I have downloaded nethack package from official site ... And my problem is solved ... I used this:

    • sudo apt-get install ncurses-term
    • sudo ln -s /lib/terminfo/x/xterm /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm
      It works now
