black and white console colors | all consoles


Well i dont quite know how to expose my problem.
On normal console display (control + alt + F1-F6) i have colors, normal ls colors and when i run console programs, for instance alsamixer it shows up the sound config in colors.
But under X when I try to run *any* console program that uses colors to distinguish their difrent activities, i can't get more than black & white (or black & red), but no more than 2 colors.
I have that feeling that might be a problem with x configuration, but where?
I have a pic here of what happens:
(just copy paste into url adress please)
