Slackware :: Change Base Console Text Color

Sep 5, 2010

I'm interested in changing the console text color. I can change the console color easily in X, but I'd also like to change the color of the text when my computer first boots up (like right after LILO).Is this something I can modify without rebuilding the kernel? If not, does anyone know where in the source I could make a change like this?

Slackware :: Can't Change The Console Text On Netbook

Aug 16, 2010

I just installed Slackware 13.1 on my Acer a0531h. My first problem is the size of letters on pure console. It's too small. I tried tweaking lilo but even using 'normal' doesn't change the size of letters. I haven't changed the default font (I think it's called default8x16). The text looks pretty sharp though, so I'm wondering whether this is its native resolution. The text during installation was huge, and quite blurry. I just want to have a text size I can easily read and if possible be sharp. I know I can start X and have whatever font family and size I want, but somehow I feel better using pure console. Just in case it matters, I want to say that eventually I want to have UTF8 support on the command line (so that I can read and write Greek).

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:

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 :: Change The Font Color Of The Text Of The Bootloader In Grub2?

Feb 14, 2010

I'm trying to change the font color of the text of the bootloader in Grub2. I'm running 9.10. I successfully edited the Grub cfg file change the colors of the Grub menu, but I'd like to change the text color as I watch the modules load and can't seem to do it. I'd also like to password protect the bootloader if possible. I installed startupmanager but the new version won't allow these changes. I like to see my modules as they load and wanted to change the color from white to blue.

Fedora :: Can't Change The Resolution Of Text Console On 13

Aug 8, 2010

I have install Fedora 13 on my machine (Intel 815 Chipset with graphic card of nVidia GeForce 256), but the default resolution of text console wound have be about 1024x768. I intend this machine as a simple samba server (without X Window), so just a low-resolution monitor will work with it. However, this monitor can't work with the resolution higher than 800x600, I have to change the resolution lower. I have searched the solutions for this problem on Google. Most of them thought I should fix /boot/grub/grub.conf, append "vga=769", "vga=771" or even "vga=ask" to the end of the line start with the word "kernel". I have tried but all of them doesn't work. Just like Fedora 13 use the value from the other configure file overwrite the one list in grub.conf. As everyone knows, if I installed and launched X Window on my machine, I could query and change the resolution with command "xrandr". Are there some similar ones that can work on text console?

Slackware :: 13.1 Text Console Horizontal Alignment?

Feb 16, 2011

I use various hard disks in my computer. When I install a 13.1 disk, the six text consoles <Ctrl-F1> through <Ctrl-F6> are shifted to the left such that the first 2 characters in the line are off my flat panel screen. I use several different disks on this machine and all other disks are properly aligned. change the vga line in /etc/lilo.conf to vga = normal rather than vga = 773. This didn't fix the problem and resulted in another problem. If I adjust my flat panel horizontal adjustment, when I start XWindows, those screens are too far to the right. Is there a way to adjust the horizontal offset only for the consoles?

Slackware :: Error Messages On The Text Console When Runnig Startx

Jun 10, 2010

Slackware 12.0 (GNU/linux kernel 2.6) I am said slackware is very stable (I suppose this means it has few bugs). However, every time I run startx to start the graphical interface, for a brief moment I can see (just before the screen is put in graphical mode) a lot of error messages. How can this be? I use slack 12 a lot and have reinstalled this distro many times. However the described behavior always repeats.

Slackware :: User_foo In Text Console Has Not Same Environment As User_foo In GUI Terminal?

Jun 15, 2011

Kernel, slackware 12.0
Xfce 4.4.1

when I open a graphical terminal in the GUI, I appear as being the same user who ran X in order to enter the GUI, say user_foo, as said by whoami. But a program I usually use in a text console as user_foo, gets Command not found here. Furthermore, the name of the dir I am in does not appear in the prompt, whereas it does when in the text console.

I guess this has something to do with enheriting the environment, but don't know wht to do for this to happen. How do I open this GUI terminal? I do so by choosing among one of several ones in the DE main menu. When I click the menu entry, the terminal doesn't ask for a password.

Debian :: Gfxpayload And Console Color?

Mar 21, 2011

I'm trying to setup X-less (console only) system on my old laptop. Everything works great, except colors of the console. When grub2's "gfxpayload" is not set, all colors appear fine, but when I set gfxpayload=1024x768" it starts with the correct resolution, but all color that's supposed to be white, appears teal (sea green).Interesting thing is that bold text in man pages appears white but not bold. Hyperlinks in links also appear white, although the selected hyperlink appears with a teal background. So the driver apperently can display other colors, but what's stopping it? Erasing "gfxpayload=1024x768" restores the colors back. Changing font's face and size didn't help. Using screen didn't help. GPM's pointer appears as a teal rect.

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 :: 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.

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).

Programming :: Easier Way To Color Text In Perl Like BASH?

Apr 8, 2010

I've been trying to figure out a way to more easily color text in Perl like I do on Bash on a Linux box. In bash, what I'll do is set color variables up to equal the escape sequence, then echo out with escape seqeunces to print it exactly how I want it. Typically I'll want a character or a word in a different color, not the whole line. For example

echo -n -e "My face is turning ${RED}red${UNCOLOR} like a lobster." In Perl with the term::ANSIColor module, it seems to just do a line. Am I being dense? Is there a way that I can do it like I do it in BASH that's fairly easy to read after the fact?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Server - Install Base System (Media Change)

Nov 25, 2010

I am installing server 10.04.1 (non-gui) on an old Dell box. All goes well until it gets to the point of "Install the base system". I get a dialog "Media Change" with asks: Please insert the disk labeled 'Ubuntu-Server 10.04.1 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ - Release i386 (20100816)' in the drive /cdrom/ and press enter. I thought that was the disk I had inserted. I looked at the disk in another machine and it appears to be labeled simply "Ubuntu-Server 10.04.1 LTS i386". I did a check of the media before starting the install and have even tried a different DVD reader in the machine as I thought it might be an issue with the drive failing to read the disk. I again and again get the error shown above.
