General :: Redefine The Way ANSI Colors Are Shown In A Terminal Emulator?
Jun 8, 2011
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?
Is there a terminal emulator which works well in an Ubuntu desktop and provides the following features which Mac OS X's Terminal application has? Re-wrapping text when the window is resized.A Clear¯ command which clears scrollback (as the shell clear does not) and does not clear the cursor's line (typically containing a prompt).
Im running ubuntu 9.04 remotley via ssh, using putty on a windows computer to control it. I want to redefine one key (I have a swedish keyboard where I have to press AltGr+key to get a tilde sign, would be better if I could get the tilde without AltGr modifier).
I read about xmodmap and xev. Using them I succesfully redefined the key for x-programs. For example if I start firefox over ssh and press the key I get the correct key. But in the terminal session the changes does not take effect. Which is probably logical since xmodmap does only work on the x-server. But how do I redefine the keys for terminal use?
I need a terminal application for linux with support for custom scripts and support to bind this scripts for hotkeys.For example I login into computers hundreds times a day. I don't want to write login and password, but to press a hotkey (Ctrl + Z for example) to automate this process. [input login, press Enter, input password, press enter, input some command...]
I'm looking for some information about termcap and terminfo... I've got some, but the problem is that some things confuse me... I thought every terminal and terminal emulator should be there, but many of the terminal emulators I use are not there.. Is this different between distributions?
It would be great if there was a terminal emulator application that used SDL.
Basically all I want to do is open a terminal, however, this is on an embedded device, and the only form of output available to me is the linux framebuffer (or ssh/serial, but I want to use the LCD). I have SDL installed already.
Actually, if there is an application that uses the framebuffer device directly, that would be fine too. I just think its odd that there are so many terminal emulators already, but none of them use SDL.
I have an OpenBSD server and I access i'm trying to access it via serial port with a Opensuse computer. I have been using Minicom but its 2 emulation types (vt102 and ANSI) Dont seem to be working for me. Is there a terminal emulator for linux that supports wyse50? That would be best.
I know this is strictly a KDE problem, but I don't want to create another account anywhere and get the KDE spam, etc.
But if anybody who reads this list has the ear of (or is) a KDE person, a minor bitch with KDE in 13.0 and 13.1 is that if you were using Konsole terminals at the time of shutting down KDE, when next you start KDE, it replaces them with Terminal Emulators.
Setting up my slackware system for prime use, i downloaded robby's xfce 4.8 package and upgraded xfce 4.6. Later i downloaded slackpkg and upgraded all my packages for the first time. When i did a restart, xfce 4.8 had gone back to xfce 4.6. I just went back to the directory where i was storing all the xfce 4.8 files and did the upgrade again, it worked; now for some reason though my terminal emulator no longer works, as regular user and root. I get an eroor saying, failed to execute terminal emulator. Input/output error.
I want to leave KDE (too bloated, got less than 300-400 megs free mem of 4G, mostly consumed by kde&friends) and I need some lightweight replacements for:
1. Desktop: lightweight, highly configurable, with utilities out of the box for: window switching (i.e. fluxbox doesn't have it and it makes me nuts), run command (usually alt+f2, I'm very used to it), virtual desktops.
2. Terminal Emulator: konsole is a very comfortable tool, highly customizable and I like it very much, but again it's very resource expensive. What do I need: no cursor blinking (gnome developers, why do you think it's comfortable? it's killing people), multitab, utf support, shortcuts customization.
3. And probably a drop-down console like yakuake or tilda (both are consuming too much resources). Requirements are the same as for terminal emulator.
I've spent a week trying to find something fitting this requirements and found nothing.
What I've tried: Desktops: fluxbox, openbox, blackbox and other *box: Major: 1. No window switching dialog 2. Awful run dialog (had to hack it so it reports at least something) 3. No window highlights in tray 4. Lots of problems with window focus minor: - some awkward position dialog on window movement - hardly customizable - need to change configs. (yes, I want this to be done via mouse and configuration dialog because it is easier and faster)
icecwm: Major: 1. looks like a time traveler from 80's 2. problems with window switching 3. no run dialog (had to make it work with grun) Minor: 1. hardly customizable
Terminal emulators: lxterminal - mostly ok: 1. awful blinking cursor 2. I've got ctrl-shift mapped to language switching and I'm very used to it.
Tried to hack it: cursor - np, key bindings - bunch of problems, I don't know why, but GDK_CONTROL_MASK | GDK_MOD1_MASK doesn't work = tried to find some widget for setting accelerator keys - no luck.
eterm - very nice: 1. no multitabbing that sux... mrxvt - the best, but doesn't have a utf support
A bunch of other libvte-based terminals with the same bugs: 1. No configuration options (that stupid cursor blinking and keybindings are hardcoded)
Drop down: 1. tilda - too heavy, no key bindings customization 2. yakuake - the best, but too heavy 3. yeahconsole - didn't even start with screams: 10 XError request
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 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.
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.
