On (08:38 07/01/09), Dave Wood <address@hidden> put forth the proposition:
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?

There must be some reason why my F1 to F5 produce [[A [[B etc. Is this
normal for a console? Why are my terminfo settings being ignored?
F6 - F12 work fine...
