I've been working on Solarized theme in Terminator (http://gnometerminator.blogspot.fr/p/introduction.html) for about a year on Gnome and have been very satisfied. Yesterday I switched to KDE and the results aren't as pleasing. It seems Terminator uses some of the colors from default KDE settings, instead of it's own preferences (Preferences --> Profiles --> Colors). For example when I use
ls -l it displays all the directories in dark blue, identical to which KDE's main terminal Konsole displays (I think it's the one defined in /etc/DIR_COLORS). It should use the lighter blue shade defined in the profile preferences.
Does anyone know how to force Terminator to override those KDE settings?
