Software :: Screen App / Retain BG / Color Background Color Gets Lost

Jul 6, 2009

I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;

This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.

Ubuntu :: HP Color Printer Not Printing Black As Black, Uses Tri-color Instead?

Feb 2, 2010

I have an HP color laser printer and I am looking for a way to print black as black instead of using tri-color. For example If I print a document that has colored text then any black text is printed using the color cartridges rather then using black. I have been surviving by using windows XP in virtualbox but I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I've looked all over then net for a solution but I've found nothing. I remember having similar problems like this with older Macs because of postscript printing and I'm thinking this is the same problem but I don't know how to fix it. I've searched the forums as well but no joy.

Debian Multimedia :: Change Desktop Fonts Color

Apr 21, 2015

poking around in the system settings nor Google are cooperating, so: How do I change the colour of the font on my desktop? I'm running Cinnamon (on Sid) and I've got a background with a lot of black in it, which makes the names of icons impossible to read. I know what everything is, of course, but I'd still like to be able to see what it is.

Ubuntu :: Blank Desktop Appearing - Just Color No Image

Jan 20, 2009

I am running Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex dual-booting with Vista for work purposes. I have been running the two successfully for quite a few months now and am just getting to grips with it. I have lost my desktop at start-up. I get all the way past the Login to a blank desktop background (just colour - no image) and the only thing visible is a Terminal window. As I am not familiar with Linux command lines I can't do very much. I have even tried reinstalling Ubuntu which showed no error messages that I noticed but, I have the same result. At the moment I have used Supergrub to allow me to boot straight to Vista till I get things sorted out.

Mar 26, 2010

so I found this applescript somewhere, and not knowing applescript I was wondering if someone could tell me what the edits I need to make to duplicate the functionality found in the perl script which follows the applescript. (ie. I want to cycle through the colors in the same sequence)

Applescript (written by someone else for OS X)

set theDesktopPlist to property list file "~/Library/Preferences/"
set theGivenDesktop to property list item "desktopCode" of property list item "Background" of theDesktopPlist

General :: Color Schemes Do Not Look Right In CLI Vim

Jun 16, 2010

I was having a bit of trouble reading the dark red strings of Vim's default color scheme, so I decided to switch to a different one. [URL]. However, when I set my color schemes to these, not only do they not come out correctly (for example, comments are bright blue), but these 2 somehow come out looking exactly the same! Am I doing something wrong, or are these colors restricted in the terminal so default colors are being chosen?

General :: 32 Bit Color And Flash Crashes?

Jan 16, 2010

I've recently set up ubuntu 9.1 via virtualbox and am having some issues getting things startedFirst issue is when I boot up the virtual machine a warning box pops up saying virtualbox is optimized for 32 bit color and the OS is running 16 bit color. Some google searches revealed that for linux 24 bit color is what I want, but most suggested I edit the xorg.conf file to 24 bit depth. Problem is when I try to open that file it's blank. Further reading seemed to indicate that the most recent versions of ubuntu no longer use the xorg.conf file, so how would I go about switching from 16 bit to 24 bit color? Not a major issue but still annoying.

General :: Color Coding Within Directories

May 13, 2011

Yes it's me again, about to ask a foolish question.I've ran man on this commands, but they don't make any reference to their color, nor is it mentioned in the Bible. As I go through such as /sbin what does the color of the commands mean, like arch is green, awk is blue, and then there is those that have a red background such as cgexec?Then I go into /etc and then there's yum.repos.d there is no man for it, so I typed it in and got "command not found", so then I went in SU mode and "vi yum.repos.d and I get "yum.repos.d" is a directory,No such file or directory. So just what is yum.repos.d, I thought this is where I add more repositories.

Ubuntu :: Resetting To Default Desktop Environment Settings

Jan 10, 2011

When I sudo apt-get install['ed] kolourpaint, I had to download all the stuff necessary for a KDE environment, I think. When I restarted the machine, everything went from black to light grey. Even NetworkManager went from the three or four curves to the pair of blue monitor computers. How do I restore the desktop environment settings?Since things changed after a command-line instruction, feel free to post the appropriate command-line instruction.

General :: Setting Background Color In Gvim?

May 16, 2010

I use a terminal with white text on black background (I just like it better), so I wrote the following line in my .vimrc file: set background=dark

However, gvim has black on white text. How do I do either of the following: Set the background of gvim to black Check in .vimrc if I'm using gvim I tried this: I started up gvim, and typed echo &term. The answer was "builtin_gui". So I wrote the following into .vimrc:

if &term == "builtin_gui"
set background=light
set background=dark

Somehow, it didn't work.

General :: How To Get Color While Editing File Through SSH Session

Nov 25, 2010

I use cygwin on Windows7 to open a ssh session to my linux box. When I edit a file with vim, I don't have color, only kind of gray bold. I have colors when I do a ls into my ssh session. I have also colors when I edit files from a ssh session from my linux box to my linux box. I modified the shortcut on Window7 to run cygwin in 256 colors, no effect. Do I need to set an environment variable on my cygwin session ?
On Cygwin and On Fedora when "sshed" from Gygwin : TERM=cygwin
