How to change the background colour of the whole screen?
I would like to follow up with another question (is that allowed?)
I would like that when root logs in, either directly on a tty terminal or as an extra virtual term in GNU's screen - for example when from within screen I give the command 'screen su' - that root's screen is red with white foregound.
All the information I have found so far only gives the escape sequences for changing the text and the backgound of the text, but not of the whole screen.
Is there anything that I could put in root's .bashrc file which could change root's screen background colour?
