I am using Fedora 8, gnome, a tcsh login shell, and I would like to have my directories and files color coded when I use ls. I have been searching the internet far and wide today looking for ways to do this. I have tried all the ways I could find: edit .bsrc file, edit DIR_COLORS, edit DIR_COLORS.xterm, create .dircolors, edit etc/profile, edit .cshrc file, alias ls --colors, and all combinations of this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.I use su in my terminal I get the colors for ls. So there must be something up with my user profile? I have tried to edit my terminal profiles and my desktop themes neither worked. Please help! I know this is a trivial issue, but now I am on a mission to figure this out.
Alright, this has been driving me bonkers for months now and I can't find the answer anywhere. I like the custom theme options with standard gnome just fine, plenty of adjustments that can be made, with only one adjustment missing which would create perfection (at least in my opinion).
How on earth is it possible to change the backgrounds of the "mini-panels" which are always grey by default? No matter which Theme I choose and customize, I can never get the background color of the time/date applet, monitors, evolution, garbage can, and so on to change. I'd like to make all of the backgrounds transparent, not just the main panels that contain the other stuff. Is this even possible, and if so, how?I'm assuming since all of those apps have the same default color that an adjustment "wherever" would then change those default colors on all of the applets (hopefully).
I have version 10.10 installed on both a desktop and a laptop. They are both close in how I setup the themes etc. However on the desktop I notice that I am missing some of the background colors on windows and in some websites. It seems to be anything using a blue/gray color. And it is White. It is noticeable on my Firefox on the laptop the borders around everything is gray, but on the desktop these are white. This seems to be not limited to the browser, as I investigated it is on all apps. I have googled this but cannot find a similar situation. I am also new to Ubuntu/Linux, which adds to my dilemma.
I got curious during the construction of my program to search for blocks of text that contain certain words, and wanted to print out blocks of text with the words I was searching for, initially, in ALL CAPS and seperated by tabs for easy identification. That got boring, though, so I thought, "Can printf do colors, too?" Yes it can.... Who knew?
I'm using xterm/screen/vim, and set them up to 256 color mode. Everything went well, except when background color for the theme I choose is not black.
Here's the theme I use in this example:[URL].. Here's the situation: as long as I only use vim, the background is well rendered, meaning everything is grey in vim background. But when I try this with screen, the background is back to black, and only the text get some kind of highlight with the background color.Here are the magical lines I added to screenrc:
Code: term screen-256color attrcolor b ".I" # Tell screen how to set colors. AB = background, AF=foreground termcapinfo xterm 'Co#256:AB=E[48;5;%dm:AF=E[38;5;%dm' # Erase background with current bg color. Not needed if TERM=screen-256color defbce "on"
Colors are well rendered in 256 color, I only have a problem with this background. Anyone knows how to 'fix' this?
I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now the colors are off. I tried different themes which made some of the tabs more readable, but I don't see how to fix it. Things like background colors in Firefox are too light to see. The same for the grid lines in OpenOffice.org Spreadsheets. Form fields are not outlined. If you don't know where they are you have to hunt by dragging the pointer over the area. Images look OK. Does this sound like something others have seen?
I want to know some PDF program for Ubuntu 10.10 so that I can highlight text with different colors as I read it and so that I can save it as intact as highlighted so that I will not have to rehighlight the same thing again and again when I open it. I have tried may softwares including the foxit pdf reader that has got the highlighting the text in windows version which is of course free of cost. But I didn't find it in the Ubuntu based Foxit reader version.
I'm having trouble with font colors in maverick. Some pages with ordinary text do not display properly, i.e. - text is invisible. It highlights a bit when I highlight it with ctrl + a, but that's about it. I've tried editing Firefox fonts (not working), editing system fonts (not working) and disabling compiz special effects (not working). I figured that maybe there's some corruption somewhere as I've installed loads of stuff in the past months and so should reinstall fonts, but couldn't find info on the net on how to achieve this.
I am trying to use the ncurses library for a little side project and am currently trying to display text with varying colors on the screen. I would like for my program to be able to change the hues of the default colors(e.g. make red a little dark, blue a little lighter, etc).
However, according to the ncurses function can_change_color() my terminal does not allow for colors to be altered. I know how to change the palette of colors that my terminal is using but I was wondering if there was a way to allow my colors to be "editable" in a sense.
My terminal is Gnome 2.30.2 and I'm running Ubuntu 10.04LTS
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.
So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]
I use slackware64 13.1. In my root account the terminal have colors for folders, files, etc and characters like appear correct.I create a normal account for me, but specials characters don't appear and terminal have no colors.I read in a lot that I need to configure a .bashrc and a .bash_profile but I don't found this files in my root account to get some guide lines.
I'd like to redefine the actual colors that ANSI escape sequences show, i.e. I'd like to personalize what "light red" means and render it as, say, orange. Is there any terminal emulator that works under linux that allows me to do this? how?
I was playing around with the settings of my Mint 7 terminal, changing colors, fonts etc.After closing, I tried to open it again by clicking on the icon and it shutsdown as soon as it opens. I can't do anything since the preferences require me to have my terminal open in the first place.
How do you increase the text size in the virtual terminal (the one you get to when you press ctrl+alt F1-6)? My monitor is pretty old and kind of small, so I need the bigger text size to really be able to use it at all. I tried to find the answer in google, but I couldn't find the answer. I found answers for suse and ubuntu and tried to use those. They said to edit part of the boot loader config file, but I couldn't find a similar line in the grub.conf file. And I don't want to play with it without knowing what I'm doing.
I had Emacs installed in Fedora 11 and want to run it text-mode,but everytime when I type emacs command in gnome terminal,an emacs graphical window pop up. I want to emacs to back to text-mode by typing M-x text-mode, and it doesn't work.Can emacs run in text-mode in X11 environment?
I wondered if whether there is any way to make the xterm fullscreen and have the same white/purple colors as gnome-terminal in 10.04.I already know how to modify the command for the xterm session, but I want to know what options to give xterm to get the fullscreen white/purple look.
So I used Arch linux for a while and was really impressed and how colorful the commandline output was. Not only from ls, which I was able to emulate by adding "alias ls="ls --color"" to my .bashrc, but also during, say, bootup and other times.Anyway, I was just wondering, what tricks do you guys use to make your command line experience more visually appealing? Fonts, colors, hacks, terminal profiles?
I'm running openSUSE 11.2 kde on msi wind u123. Everything runs fine except that whenever i try to shutdown or restart system i see both splash background and the rolling text. I think i should only see the splash with the progress bar until shutting down finishes. But for no apparent reasons i see both which is very annoying.
It might help that i changed the splash screen to a custom one. Here is the one i use and i followed every single instruction.
I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 in text only mode and on 1st console (tty1) I see background (wallpaper) and logo at upper left corner: I know that I can to disable this splash permanently (menu.lst) or temporarily ('echo 0 > /proc/splash'). How I can:
1. Change the background (/etc/bootsplash/themes - is this here?).
