Help with using Ncurses and C++

I have just spend the last few hours researching on both the list archives and using google without much success.
I am looking at moving a project from a real-time (sort of) version of Windows NT to run under SuSE Linux 9.1.
>From the OS perspective everything looks good, however one small subject is messing me up. Most of the
code is written in C, compiled under C++ and it is our intention to rewrite to OO type C++. And while this also
is pretty straight forward we are stumbling on a small problem. Most of the time the system runs with little input
from the users, however there are quite a few setup screens that need to be on terminal type screens. We are using
QT for the more complex setup screens but need to use Ncurses for the runtime stuff. Has anyone had an experience using
Ncurses in a C++ class type programming?

I have found quite a few wrappers and such but all seem to have been dropped around late 2000 or in one case 2003.
What are people actually using for this type of development?

Would appreciate any help you could give and if you have a better suggestion would appreciate that as well.

Thanks for your time,
