I installed Solaris 10, but I want change the background terminal color to black. Is there any way to see my text in color mode with vi editor too?

  • What terminal are you using? dtterm or any other? – Abel Cheung Jul 11 '15 at 8:18
  • I use Gnome terminal. – Gohar Jul 11 '15 at 9:08

You can change the default colors of your terminal emulator, whether it is dtterm, gnome-terminal or even xterm (reverse-video), using its configuration menu.

Solaris 10 standard System V vi doesn't support syntax coloring. You need to install and use vim or elvis to get it.

  • where is its option in gnome-treminal? – Gohar Jul 11 '15 at 9:04
