and this to your crate root:

Packaging and Distributing

For all terminals but windows consoles, this library depends on a non-hashed (for now) terminfo database being present. For example, on Debian derivitives, you should depend on ncurses-term; on Arch Linux, you depend on ncurses; and on MinGW, you should depend on mingw32-terminfo.

Unfortunately, if you're using a non-windows console on Windows (e.g. MinGW, Cygwin, Git Bash), you'll need to set the TERMINFO environment variable to point to the directory containing the terminfo database.
