Greetings,
When I am trying to launch Pico I get the following error:
Sorry, I don't know anything about your "xterm-color" terminal.

This does not happen if I launch vi.

Your help is appreciated.
Thanks...

1. what version of pico u r running.
2. check the echo $TERM value.
3. check the echo $SHELL value.

set the terminal value depending upon what kind of terminal u r using.
setenv TERM xterm-color
setenv TERM vt100
