     1BarnOwl has built-in support for 256color terminals, assuming your libncursesw (and GNU `screen`, if you're using it) support it.
     2
     3If you're running BarnOwl out of the locker and want 256color support, use `barnowl-256color` instead of `barnowl`.
     4
     5As of Debian Lenny, the stock screen is built with 256color support, but it is disabled by default.
     6To enable it, add the following to your `~/.screenrc`.
     7{{{
     8# tell screen how to set colors. AB = background, AF=foreground
     9termcapinfo xterm 'Co#256:AB=\E[48;5;%dm:AF=\E[38;5;%dm'
     10# erase background with current bg color
     11defbce "on"
     12}}}

     14For older platforms, the barnowl locker has a newer `screen` under the name of `screen-256color`, and /mit/barnowl/etc/screenrc has the aforementioned additions.
