Color in TinyFugue


I feel like a knob asking this, but I can't get color out of TinyFugue. I'm running SuSE 8.2 with KDE, and the only way I can get TF to start is in a terminal window, in which I'm not getting any color. I've tried adding a shortcut to it in KDE, and it never loads. Help?

I installed tf and I highly doubt that there is any other way to run tf
then in a terminal window, because the program is just text.
No fancy gtk or qt frontend.
I don't see any color option in the arguments either:
Code:
$ tf --help
tf: illegal option -- -
Usage: tf [-L<dir>] [-f[<file>]] [-c<cmd>] [-nlq] [<world>]
       tf [-L<dir>] [-f[<file>]] [-c<cmd>] <host> <port>
Options:
  -L<dir>   use <dir> as library directory (%TFLIBDIR)
  -f        don't load personal config file (.tfrc)
  -f<file>  load <file> instead of config file
  -c<cmd>   execute <cmd> after loading config file
  -n        no automatic first connection
  -l        no automatic login/password
  -q        quiet login
  -v        no automatic visual mode
Arguments:
  <host>    hostname or IP address
  <port>    port number or name
  <world>   connect to <world> defined by addworld()
So, you'll have to live with the fact it's a program that has to be run inside a terminal without color.

Hmm. It does support color (try /color_on or /color_off, for instance), and I've had it working just fine with color using the Win32 binary, so I'm pretty sure it's possible...

Problem solved. Apparently, the way to get color is to make some /defs that use color... bash is perfectly willing to interpret it. Doh.
