Scigraphica-termcap installation

Hi all,

I am trying to install Scigraphica on Ubuntu 8.10 and Termcap needs to be installed.
I cannot find or install Termcap by Synaptic package manager (sudo apt-get install does not work either).
I found in some forums that Termcap is not available for Ubuntu 8.10, and ncurses-dev was suggested instead.

I tried to install ncurses-dev, but it was not authenticated.

Is it really harmful? Any experience with that?
How can I get Scigraphica's configure script working?

Sorry, just a correction,

I used command
sudo apt-get install libncurses-dev

---------- Post updated at 09:36 PM ---------- Previous update was at 07:49 PM ----------

Ok. that's sorted now. I installed libncurses5-dev and the problem was sorted.

But now, it asks for XML-config, although I have pkg packages.
