I have configured Terminator to use Solarized color theme.

I did the same for MC.

However, the problem I have is that I don't get actual Solarized color scheme in MC (as there already is one below and the skin expects default white-on-black Terminator color profile).

How can I fix this? I was thinking about configuring Terminator to change them whenever MC is launched but I couldn't find a way to do this.


I am using MC 4.8 and the following works for that version:

  1. create a ~/.config/mc/skins directory
  2. copy (or link) the .ini file defining the skin into ~/.config/mc/skins
  3. edit .config/mc/ini adding a line containing skin=solarized to the section Midnight-Commander.
