The file manager ranger works great, and uses the normal X resources color scheme of my terminal (urxvt). But when it shows a preview of files and highlights their syntax (presumably using highlight or pygmentize), the colors are all wrong, and look like default colors (bright blue, bright red, etc.). How can I get syntax highlighting in ranger to use the normal X colors? Running cat some-file.py | pygmentize seems to work fine and use my color scheme, but it doesn't seem to work in Ranger.

  • what do you have the colorscheme set to, for instance in rc.conf set colorscheme default is it set to default? have you tried the other colorschemes that it ships with? – WEBjuju Jan 18 '18 at 22:20





in your scope.sh and reload.
