There's an invocation of tic(1M) in the install target of st's
Makefile. It installs st and variants to a place it sees fit in your
system, like /usr/lib/terminfo, or home directory. As you were
consistently mute about your system and the environment in which
programs fail on st for you, it would be *a lot* of work telling you
what exactly to do for each system where st can be expected to work
on. There are probably many.

Btw, please avoid top-posting around here.
