After installing Midnight Commander in CentOS 7, I looked for the configuration file in
/home/$USER/.mc.ini but didn't find it. I want to change my default skin to another color scheme, but can't find config file.
If you have not made any changes, the config file does not yet exist.
The easy way to change from the default skin:
Start Midnight Commander
F9, O for Options, or cursor to "Options" and press Enter
A for Appearance, or cursor to Appearance and press Enter
You will see that default is the current skin.
Press Enter to see the other skin choices
Cursor to the skin you want and select it by pressing Enter
After you do this, the ini file will exist and can be edited, but it is easier to change skins using the method I described.
