General :: How To Specify Text Message Color On Gnome Terminal

Aug 11, 2010

OS is CentOS 5.5, and GNOME terminal emulator (v2.16.0). However I regard the question is not related with OS/Gnome version level. My question is whether if color setting is available or not for the text character outputted by kernel (or shell, i.e. Bash). Normally we can specify/modify text character color (and background color) with property setting on the terminal. However, it only takes affect to the text for inputting character, not for outputted character by kernel/shell. For example, when we type a shell command "ls -al <cr>", the text appears with the color along with the terminal property.

Meanwhile, the text message displayed on the console (output message against "ls -al" command), in this case it must be file and/or directory names, will appear with some preset color which we've not preliminarily set. In my case, I set Text color with "White", Background color with "Black". Then I expect the text output message color displayed by kernel/shell would be some brighter color. But the color is "blue" which does not look better brightness against "Black" background. For this situation what I'd like to know is how to set/specify the color outputted by the kernel/shell (or whether or not it is possible to set manually).

Ubuntu :: Change The Color Of The Text Before The Input At The Terminal?

Jan 17, 2011

I really don't know what to call it, but I want to change the color of text that appears before you type in whatever your input is.

For example:

Code:
negrabee@david-desktop:~$ ls /home/david/

I would want "negrabee@david-desktop:~$" to be in a different color. When you have whole bunch of commands and text in a full screen terminal, it gets really annoying to have to look for where you're entering the command so changing the color.

Ubuntu :: Changing Gnome-panel Text Color?

Mar 22, 2011

I have a theme that looks like this.

Unfortunately, it makes the globalmenu and clock applets disappear on my gnome-panel. My panel is set to system theme, though when I choose a solid color I can get the hidden text to show up. I want to preserve the system color so I need to change the text color somehow. Also, I don't know why it uses that bluish color when clicked on since I never defined such a color in the appearance settings.

Red Hat :: Overlapping Text In Gnome Terminal?

Dec 21, 2010

On my RHEL6 Gnome Terminal, the text is overlapping. I tried with the "Use the system fixed width font" option or changing other fonts, but they did not change. Also, I tried creating .fonts.conf file that's posted as a solution for other but this did not help.

Thing is that the first time when I installed RHEL6, it looked ok, but 2nd installation on VirtualBox client and thereafter, this happens. I'm using the same installation source and options as the 1st time. Also, "Open Terminal" option is missing from pop-up window after 2nd installation (Terminal is still available from App->System Tools; just not from popup window).

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-terminal And Blinking Text

Jan 11, 2011

I have a text based application that I need to use inside X. So I created a gnome-terminal profile called counter3 which runs the command /counter/counter3. I then created added a startup application: gnome-terminal --full-screen --hide-menubar --window-with-profile=counter3

Everything works great. I turn the PC on, it auto logins to the user counter, X starts, and the counter application starts full screen. The only problem is the text doesn't blink when there is a problem. How can I get the text to blink? The text blinks if I boot into runlevel 3 and run counter3 manually. However I need to run counter3 in X as there is a second application that requires X. The text application runs in the foreground and is used constantly. The X based application is run in the background.

General :: Adjust Terminal Color Palette?

Jul 12, 2010

I'm on Debian with KDE 3.5 desktop and I use the Konsole terminal emulator.What I would like to know is: is it possible to tweak the color palette, for example to change my red to something a bit brighter? I use the "white on black" schema in Konsole and all colors are great except that red is far too dark on the black background. I found this Perl script that is supposed to change the palette but, while it prints the current palette just fine, I can see no difference between the various palettes.Searching for solutions mostly brings up pages about changing the scheme in Konsole or how to use colors in prompts and ls output etc, which is not quite what I need.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Menu Text Color?

Oct 8, 2010

I just upgraded to Maverick this afternoon, and have run into one very small, but very annoying problem.

Since upgrading, the text color for the Firefox menu is black. This makes it unreadable/invisible using probably the majority of personas. I have been able to find no way of changing this color. This was not an issue in Lucid.

There have been other threads on this subject, some of which suggest editing a userChrome.css file. I have edited that file, but upon restarting Firefox, the changes I have made revert back to what they had been before I made my edits.

I have also fiddled around with trying to change all manner of GTK settings, but still nothing has had any influence. I logged into a Gnome session, as well, but was still unable to remedy this.

Ubuntu :: Modify Webpage Text Box Color?

I downloaded an .emerald + GDK theme off gnome-look.org and absolutely love it so far. The only thing I do not like about it is the fact that it changes the background color of all webpage text boxes to black, which sorta ruins a lot of sites. where I can modify just that little bit? the webpage text box color? I'd like to keep the theme and just set the text boxes back to normal. Using Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition.
