General :: Export My Ubuntu Terminal's Color Scheme For Use On Other Computers?
Feb 4, 2011
How can I export my Ubuntu terminal's color scheme for use on other computers?I've set up a color scheme that I like and I'd like to put it in a git repo for easy loading from other machines. Any strategy that would make it work in other terminal apps too, such as Konsole?
I have several terminals opened at once to monitor the logs. It would be helpful to choose different basic color for text (and maybe for background) for each terminal so I can quickly locate the one I need. Anyone know how to do this or perhaps point me to right direction?
I used to use the negative filter (Compiz) with Eclipse in order to have a dark background, but I wasn't satisfied. Then I ended up changing the Appeareance for all gnome windows (and applying a color scheme to Eclipse editors), so my background is black and the text is white.
It works perfectly for most of applications, but some (i.e. the crappy Celtx) are unreadable, as they keep the white of the font but use a white background. For Celtx, I'm still searching for the css to modify. But, overall, it could be great if there was a way to define one -more standard, black on white- color theme to be applied only on some applications (the conflictive ones).
I am using export in 'Inkscape' to convert an SVG file to PNG. As I am using a transparent background, the colour of background is automatically set to yellow. I want to change this default colour to white. How can I do this?
I'm trying to set up a centralized log-on scheme in a research lab with about 10 computers. It's looking like we're going with LDAP - this decision may be out of my control (but if there's an alternative that would be REALLY better, do let me know). My question is we don't really have a domain name, so when all the tutorials say cn=example,cn=com, I can't mimic this exactly. I've been trying to get away with just one, like cn=researchlab. Will LDAP work with just one, or do I need to invent a second also? On the flipside, will it work with more? Our server can be reached by lab.department.school.edu, could I do cn=lab,cn=department,cn=school,cn=edu?
i changed my kde color scheme and it changed firefox's and opera's color scheme. sometimes it can be difficult to read links or articles on web pages. i don't want to change their default color schemes. how can i do that ?
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.
accidentally I raised my brightness to 100% so I couldn't see anything..My battery died before I could fix it with tab or something else.now I can't fix it because I can't see anything.Is there a way to adjust color brightness through my unix terminal.....?
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).
I want to be able to synchronise files between 2 remote computers in both directions. Say for example that I want to synchronize my /home/Documents directory with <username>@example.com:/home/Documents What's the easiest way to update the folders in both directions, so that new/updated files on my home computer get transferred to the remote computer, and new/updated files on the remote computer get transferred to my home computer?
I have a "remote" server and I want to have it's X exported to my "local" laptop. Preferably, it gets done automatically from boot. I know that virtual terminals 1-6 are all text terminals and 7 is the local X. How can I get my laptop to automatically create a virtual terminal on 12 that's dedicated to receiving the X display from the server?
I know how to get it over SSH/putty. And also how to stop the local and restart the X client on 7 to use the remote. But one of the beauties of Linux is the automation and multi-user environment. It's essentially going to act as a KVM with gui replacement over IP.
in windows you do i think ipconfig and it shows all computers on the network and their ip's including yours , how to do that in ubuntu ? well i just want to see other computers and their ip's including their names ( in windows for names you use net view)
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.
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.
When I type (in new 10.10) soem cmdline comands like "ls -l" then some of the directories have a different fore-and background color (e.g. black on green) while the remaining other directoreis are blue on white.
Where can I find out the meaning of the diferent colors and how can I change them?
If I go to menu
then I can set only the full overall background and foreground color. But here only certain parts have a different color. the main color (black on white) is suitable. I do not use system theme.
I am trying to do Multi_key composition...But not able to find which is my character encoding scheme under /usr/share/X11/locale/ I have several direcotries under this folder...How can i come to kno which is my character encoding scheme..Any command for this ?
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.
