Ubuntu :: Set Colors To Be Editable In Terminal?

Jun 22, 2011

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

Fedora :: Colors In Gnome Terminal?

Mar 30, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Pimp Command Line (Fonts, Colors, Hacks, Terminal Profiles)?

Mar 7, 2011

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?

General :: What Do Various Colors In Results Of Bash Ls Signify?

Jan 12, 2011

I am at the moment using Ubuntu 10.10 with the default color scheme. If I open a bash terminal and type ls -l / I get the results with most information in white on the standard purple background, most directory names in blue on the normal background, tmp in blue on a green background, a file name in white on the normal background and links in teal on the normal background.

So in this situation I am wanting to figure out what the green background behind tmp signifies. I have searched for information about bash color codes and I find hundreds of links regarding how the CHANGE the colors. I have yet to find one which explains what the colors mean.

General :: Setting Custom LS Colors In Xterm?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm having difficulty setting custom ls colors in xterm. If I understand it right one can edit the system-wide file located in /etc/DIR_COLORS to modify every terminal or customize xterm; I chose xterm mostly because the other terminals I never use. Here is my .bash_profile and .bashrc respectively:
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
source ~/.bashrc
fi

if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
source /etc/bashrc
fi

alias ls='ls --color -F'
PS1='[e[1;32m][u@h:w]$[e[0m] '

When I use the login shell, the colors are different than xterm in that they are not as bright; furthermore, I marked out bold fonts in .Xresources:
!xterm colors
xterm*foreground: #d3d3d3
xterm*background: #000000
xterm*boldColors: false
xterm*cursorBlink: true
xterm*cursorColor: white
xterm*loginShell: false
xterm*faceName: Liberation Mono
xterm*faceSize: 10

So, there must be a file around somewhere that is changing the colors between the interactive and login shells. Also,
man xterm:
color6 (class Color6)
color7 (class Color7)

These specify the colors for the ISO-6429 extension. The defaults are, respectively, black, red3, green3, yellow3, a customizable dark blue, magenta3, cyan3 and gray90. The default shades of color are chosen to allow the colors 8-15 to be used as brighter versions. How does that get anyone anywhere with setting the color? It doesn't say what color (class) is assigned to which file specifically, thus adhering to the distribution-wide color codes. Perhaps I am making this more difficult than it should be.

General :: Get Putty To Support 256 Colors In Emacs On CentOS?

Jan 21, 2011

As far as I can tell from browsing around, I should be getting 256 colors in my Emacs, but I'm not. I'm running CentOS 5.4 on an ec2 instance. I'm running Putty 0.60 on Windows 7. Putty is set to send xterm-256color for its terminal string. Putty is set to allow 256 colors. On CentOS, my $TERM is set to xterm-256color.

tput colors shows 256. I recompiled Emacs to 23.2, making sure to install libtermcap-devel beforehand, because someone claimed they needed that. But still, when I M-x list-colors-display in Emacs, it only shows 8 colors.

General :: Launch A Terminal By Clicking On The Terminal Icon At The Top Of The Screen

Apr 22, 2010

I have a favorite REXX program called fv2. When I was a Windows user I had an icon for fv2 on the Quick Launch bar. Click that icon, and the program ran. Now, as a Linux (Ubuntu) user it is necessary to go through several steps to run fv2.

1) Launch a terminal by clicking on the terminal icon at the top of the screen. What's that area called? The GNOME panel?
2) Enter: ~/Desktop/RexxScripts
3) Enter: regina fv2

I run fv2 several times per day and would really like to have the convenience of a clickable icon.

General :: Terminal Proxy Or Screen Without Terminal Emulation?

May 26, 2010

How can I make terminal applications immune to terminal emulator close, but still able to use all virtual terminal features?

egin{UPDATE}I want my terminal application remain alive and accessible if I accidentally close terminal emulator. This functionality is provided by screen and tmux, but they have issues with colors and they flush screen.Yes,I can run the shell inside screen, but I do not want the shell remain alive unless there is some other program running.

end{UPDATE}I see this must be something like screen, but without VT100 terminal emulation, something which will just apply whatever application does with "terminal proxy"'s terminal (like outputting something to stdout/stderr or using stty to set terminal options) to the terminal this proxy runs in.

// I know about screen and altscreen on, but it makes either this (screen with TERM=screen):

or this (screen with TERM=rxvt-unicode):

while I want this (rxvt-unicode without screen):

I have figured out that everything looks fine if I compile rxvt-unicode with USE=-xterm-color (in fact vim looks like on the second picture even without screen if I add this USE flag) and set TERM=screen-256color, but I do not like this workaround because it actually changes colors and I can't be sure that it will always change them only this way:
