Have you considered using curses.h instead of conio.h?
Quoting from Wikipedia:
conio.h is a C header file used in old MS-DOS compilers to create text user interfaces. It is not described in The C Programming Language book, and it is not part of the C standard library, ISO C nor is it defined by POSIX... Most C compilers that target UNIX and Linux do not have this header and do not supply the library functions.... It is common to include curses.h instead of conio.h, if a program is compiled on a non-DOS operating system.
