I seem to be unable to change my function keys in my custom terminfo file.
I don't get any errors with tic.

I am trying to set them like

kf1=\E[11~, kf2=\E[12~, etc

rather than the default

kf1=\E[A~ or whatever, which gives a problem with vim keybinds.

But they still show the old [[[A etc. This is for TERM=linux.

Any ideas how I can do this, or why my terminfo is ignoring those F keys?

infocmp would show what terminfo _says_ (and where it gets the data from).

But your terminal emulator may say something different.  It generally
does not read the terminfo data, but does that by itself.
