I see one other Dark blue color...-Q with the same problem:
Instead of two kinds of blue (normal and bright/bold) I have only one, very hard-to-read so-called "bold blue". Normal blue is even worse, almost invisible.
I don't want to change LS_COLORS. I do want directories in blue, but in a brighter one. I don't want them in magenta or green.
In dircolors' output I see dozens of extensions (tar, tgz, mp3) coding for bright red or magenta. And something as fundamental as a directory gets completely lost in it's midnight blue!
It is already set to bright:
`DIR 01;34 # directory`
In XTerm I can set
*VT100*color12: SkyBlue2 in the
app-defaults/ file. But for the console? The kernel only gives me 16 predefined ANSI colors!
Do I have to recompile the kernel to change these RGB definitions for the console? This navy blue must be coded somewhere!
/* added after 1st answer */
echo -en "\e]PCrrggbb" as proposed: this works! This is really special - the bracket is the other way round. And "should be OSC" in the man page...thank you!
The link in dirkt's answer also has
setvtrgb as a second solution. Number salad, but no escape codes.
Do these two methods amount to the same?
