Hello again there:
Here is my problem, I am colorblind. I run gentoo and when I use xterm, the man pages and the emerge search, comes out in different colors that I can not see sometimes, is there a way to make xterm to list everything in black by default?? I know how to set the background to different colors, but I want the fonts to be always black
Thanks in advance
Also you could use Konsole (KDE) or gnome-terminal (Gnome) and set the schema for black on white or what ever.
I realize that there is some automatic color coding depending on what you run (mutt for instance), but konsole and gnome terminal allow you to change the color pallets which will sometimes over ride these color changes so you'll have to experiment.
Also check out eterm, wterm, rxvt, and aterm which all behave a little differently and may give you more options in regard to colored fonts and backrounds. You're just going to have to play arround.
