I'm using Arch, and i am emulating a virtual operating system (Linux) with qemu (qemu-system-x86_64), but this system has no colors (calling escape sequences directly doesn't work either, not even "tput") whenever i use the "-curses" flag, but when i did the same test on Devuan, it had colors, so how can i achieve the same behaviour on Arch?
