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 :: Change Virtual Terminal Colors Before Logging In?

Apr 17, 2011

I put

echo -e 'e[0;34m'

into /etc/profile, but it still doesn't work until I login. I'd like it to work before that, so that all messages (like those displayed on boot up) have these default settings.

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?

Slackware :: SVG Logo (GPL) Editable Vector Version?

Mar 3, 2011

I was fiddling with some svg icons and I needed a slack svg logo: looking on the propaganda page, I spotted this jpg that looked like a nice and clean candidate. So I fired up inkscape and tried to manually trace a (manageable) svg version out of it. Then I thought that maybe an editable vector version of it can be useful to someone else and, as asked by Pat, I release it here under the GPL. [URL]. (gotta say I haven't looked around if any other logo svg has been posted before, but, clicking on the "Click Here to Find Similar Threads" found this funny one )

General :: Using Flash Drive As Editable HD Not Just Boot Disk?

Sep 17, 2010

I recently acquired (another) older laptop in need of a hard drive. Lower capacity IDE laptop drives are getting hard to come by from reliable sellers. I'd like to rewire a USB port, and run it into the hard drive slot, running the system off a flash drive rather than a hard drive. I'm running in to the problem I can't find any way to set it up. The system does not support any BIOS options for messing with USB drives. Why it CAN boot off one is beyond be, it's not in the temp boot menu, but when I leave it in, it boots off USB by default. I tried loading Ubuntu, and I have tried copying the files off of a setup hard drive to the flash drive, but I have yet to be successful. Is it even possible to run a linux off a flash drive so I can keep a desktop environment, rather than having it reset to the default ISO state every time I reboot?

Ubuntu Servers :: Folder And File Creation - Can't Successfully Share Editable Files Between Users

Feb 18, 2010

I'm trying to setup a Samba share for our work. I have it almost complete, however I can't successfully share editable files between users. The issue I'm having is that say User1 create a file test.txt, because of the 755 permissions, then User2, who has "writable" rights as per the smb.conf file, cannot edit that test.txt file.

Whevener I create a file with a user, its locked by that user. Is there a way I can set it that every folder/file a user creates is 777 ? I firgured that there's still security because of the "Valid users = " field in the smb.conf file.

Debian :: Change Font Size In Editable Fields - Borked After Fglrx Install

Sep 10, 2010

I recently installed an ATI graphics card driver (fglrx) and ran the aticonfig --initial program/option, which makes the necessary changes to xorg.conf for the user.

My original problem was that all of my font sizes were changed (far too small to even read). I found a temporary way around this by simply increasing the sizes in the gnome appearance properties, but the problem is there is no option to change the size of text that appears in editable fields. For example, simple text-line entry widgets in various applications appear very small (as well as the default text size in icedove mail). Trying to use openoffice.org Writer or Calc also gives the same results. It seems directly related to the sizes of "editable fields" (things like my text editor - gedit- appear to be fine, as well as my terminal). I'm guessing this could have something to do with my xorg.conf, but I've looked through the file and don't know what to change, or where else I could look. If it helps at all, I have most of my font sizes now (in gnome) set to 14, but they appear as 12.

I'm not sure exactly why this is happening, but I need some help in getting some of this text readable again. Please see the attached screenshot of a blank Calc spreadsheet, and it might shed some light on this. You might also notice that in the screenshot, the default font size is 10, but if I change this to 12, and then load it on say, a Windows computer, the text will appear to be much larger than a 12. I'll also include my xorg.conf, in case that has anything to do with it.

Ubuntu :: Customize Colors For One Application Only?

May 10, 2010

I was wondering if it is possible to specify a custom color theme that Ubuntu should apply to one application only. Specifically, I want to customize the tooltop color for Eclipse.

Fwiw, the reason I want to do this is that karmic's ambiance theme provides black tooltip backgrounds with white tooltop text, but eclipse (stupidly) uses the black tooltip background for content assist boxes while ignoring the tooptip text color and instead applying its own sytnax highlighting rules, which specify black text. This results in black text on a black background -- ugh!

Ubuntu :: Maverick First Look: Strange Colors?

Oct 10, 2010

About an hour ago I completed the Network upgrade to Maverick from Lucid. Immediately I see some changes over Lucid: my computer can now hibernate successfully, a feature that worked in Hardy, but was broken in Karmic and Lucid. But a small annoyance is the strange colors. There is an abundance of purple colors in icons, in links, in indicators. I have attached a small snapshot of my browser. The circled purple area should be blue in normal contions.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 4 Strange PNG Colors Since 11.04?

May 2, 2011

I upgraded to Ubuntu to 11.04, but when I now open firefox and go to localhost, some PNG images have really strange colors. This is not the case when I display the webpage in Google Chrome. I'm not sure if I will have similar problems with all PNG's, but I wouldn't be surprised. For instance, a random PNG in Firefox 4:

And the same image in Chrome: What could be the problem? How do I solve this? This only seems to hapen with alpha transparent images!

Ubuntu :: How To Install Conky-colors 7.0

I'm getting very frustrated and confused with conky-colors. I was reading OMGubuntu, and saw that Conky Colors 7 had been release and it looked pretty [URL]pt to install it from that page, but got hopelessly confused. I would really just like some step by step, noob friendly instructions. I managed to do these first two steps though:"$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-keyring python-statgrab ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Colors Are Off?

Sep 1, 2011

I noticed as I was watching a video that the colors are totally off. I don't have any problems with the Monitor or the display of websites, it's only videos that aren't displayed correctly. Could that be due to the graphic card? I thought about updating the drivers but since I did that when I installed Ubuntu and had the problem from the beginning I wonder what it could be.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Playback With Odd Colors

Jan 30, 2010

I recently upgraded my girlfriend laptop to 9.10 and now, for some odd reason, when she plays DVDs on her laptop (the most recent attempt was the latest Harry Potter movie) the movie would play back fine but the colors for everything were way off. I've re-added the medibuntu software sources to her system and applied all available updates but it didn't help.

This problem did not occur on my own computer when attempting to play the exact same DVD.
