WARNING: terminal is not fully functional (After installing Xcode on Mac OS X)

From the first answer here:
  1. This is due to xcode install messing with /usr/share/terminfo
  2. The default terminal is xterm-256color which is removed from /usr/share/terminfo/78
  3. If you have a TimeMachine backup, use that to restore /usr/share/terminfo. 
  4. If you don't, use the file provided here.


  1. "Stuff that might be of use but probably not."

    Hah. This post helped. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for reposting this fix. Simple things like Screen or clear won't work without this entry.
