libtinfo

Hello folks!

I'm searching for a package containing "libtinfo.so.5".
Is there such a package in the repository at all?

Regards
Nik

That's pretty strange, since it's provided by ncurses on my (non-Arch) system. Also on Debian.

Perhaps because we compile ncurses with:  --with-termlib=tinfo

Edit: Bah. Is confusing sad

Re: libtinfo

I have solved the dependency problem which I was confronted with
by creating a symbolic link

$ cd /usr/lib
$ sudo ln -s libncurses.so.5 libtinfo.so.5

Installing cuda-toolkit just to get libtinfo.so is not the right solution.
In many other distributions libtinfo.so is part of ncurses library.
Why not in Archlinux?

Re: libtinfo

You didn't say what do you need this library for, but you can always ask on the mailing list why doesn't Arch Linux provide it.

Sure it was. The first search result was very relevant to the discussion.

Re: libtinfo

Those users that got here because of getting the following error while executing `scilab` (downloaded from the official website)

```
$ ./bin/scilab-cli
scilab-cli-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
```

I executed the following command in order to get rid of that error and succesfully exexute `scilab-cli`

```
$ doas ln -s /lib/libncursesw.so.6.2 /lib/libtinfo.so.5
$ I ./bin/scilab-cli
Scilab 6.1.0 (Feb 25 2020, 10:58:38)

-->
```

Note that I selected `libncursesw.so.6.2` because I didn't have the version (see below) that @nitralime mentioned in his/her reply above.

```
$ ls -l /lib/libncurses*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root     20 Feb 13 03:08 /lib/libncurses++.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root     18 Feb 13 03:08 /lib/libncurses.so
