E.3 Curses Notes

If you are having problems compiling ‘check_funs.cpp’ then the most likely reason is due to incompatibilities with the curses implementation on your system. You should first try disabling the “wide” curses library by with the ‘--disable-wide-curses’ configure option.. By doing so you will lose support for properly displaying UTF-8 characters but you may still be able to get the full screen interface. If this fails than you can disable curses support altogether with the ‘--disable-curses’ configure option. By doing this you will lose the nice full screen interface but hopefully you will be able to at least get Aspell to compile correctly.

If the curses library is installed in a non-standard location than you can specify the library and include directory with ‘--enable-curses=lib’ and ‘--enable-curses-include=dir’.

lib’ can either be the complete path of the library—for example


or the name of the library (for example ‘ncurses’) or a combined location and library in the form ‘-Llibdir -llib’ (for example ‘-L/usr/local/ncurses/lib -lncurses’).

dir is the location of the curses header files (for example ‘/usr/local/ncurses/include’).
