Change Xfce Terminal Emulator Colors Preferences

Postby plittlefield » 03 May 2013, 12:42

Hi

My first post so be gentle :-)

Can you please change the default XFCE Terminal colors from Black on Cream to White on Black?

If not, then is there a way I can add an .conf file or .rc file onto my USB drive to load those colors automatically?

Thanks for your help on such a seemingly trivial matter.

:-)

Regards

Paully

You can use a autorun script to change the terminals config file.
Its also possible to work with a backstore file to make all changes persistent.

Third way to make your change is to create a module with the config file.

Hi Gernot

Thanks for your reply :)

OK, I have found out where Terminal keeps its configuration file.

~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc

And, I think the Autorun Script looks easiest to try first...

...so I guess I just have to put my own terminalrc file on the root of the USB stick and write something like this?

Code: Select all

cat >/media/SYSRESC/terminalrc
#!/bin/bash
cp /livemnt/boot/terminalrc /root/.config/Terminal/
exit 0
CTRL+D


Does that look correct?

:)

yes it work if you name the script autorun, but its better to use an editor.
Also a "here document" is a good idea because this work also with the docache option.

autorun

Code: Select all

cat >/root/.config/Terminal/terminalrc << FILEEND

here is the content of the terminalrc file

FILEEND

#dont wait for a keypress
touch /etc/ar_nowait

I would like to further more asking question which is similar to the topic.

What about the menu OR the icon button on the desktop screen?

Is it possible to change menu button size?
It could be X windows / XFCE command question, sorry I not familiar with the basic commands that can change things like display resolution, desktop background image, graphical settings etc...
