Iv wanted to do this for the longest time; but never could. I thought i read how to do it in running Linux a long time ago; im not sure. I want to alter my display in the main console. I want to either have a pic'(prefered) or another color other than black in the bg. and change the txt color to red or green er something else. Surely i can change the font color since theres the whole file color code stuff. I tried xsetroot, xsetbg, etc with the "-onroot" op' , no luck. i guess since theres an x before each of those you need to be running the x server lol.Dose anyone know what im talking about? Has anyone done this? Im sure you can change the font color (not sure how).. But what about the background?

You can find a lot of info about changing colors in the linux virtual terminal at:
