hi all, first post to the list-

i've scanned the archives and seen that others have had issues getting 256 colors under screen as well - this is the issue i'm having.

i'm running the 'xterm-colortest' found here:

and it works correctly in my terminal (iTerm on OSX). however, when i start screen the colors are binned into nearest neighbor or something like that. here is my .screenrc

cfp:~ > cat .screenrc
termcapinfo xterm ti@:te@
defscrollback 1            #Will be handled localy

# terminfo and termcap for nice 256 color terminal
# allow bold colors - necessary for some reason
attrcolor b ".I"

# tell screen how to set colors. AB = background, AF=foreground
termcapinfo xterm 'Co#256:AB=\E[48;5;%dm:AF=\E[38;5;%dm'

# erase background with current bg color
defbce "on"

any thoughts on how to fix this issue?

kind regards.
