Terminal..


Got a basic Sun Linux 5 distro at work.. with basic options installed. And the terminal window is all coloured. Is there a way to run a terminal without colours?

I suppose there is, but how to do it depends on which terminal you run.

Sorry, that was a little vague. Its running the standard Gnome terminal and files / folders etc are all colour coded etc. Text etc. appears red on black so what I want is a standard black/white terminal and wondered if there was a version available. I have messed with the colour options but to no avail.

With a Gnome terminal you should simply be able to change the colour in the options menu.
BTW it's standard in the Gnome terminal to display diferent colours, eg the folders default bleu.

Sorry I submitted to quickly:
if you can't change the colours using the options then maybe corel tempered with the config files or has changed the command used to launch the terminal with to get those colours.
