I have a Raspberry Pi hooked up to an E-Ink screen. To make it more readable, I'd like to basically invert all the colors (it is currently white text on black background, I'd like black text on white background). I can use X11 and a window manager, but I'd really like to make it light weight and just use tmux in the linux terminal as my interface.
So basically, I want to make the background of the linux terminal white and the foreground black.
I've tried escape sequences, LS_COLORS, and tput but all those seem to only affect the parts of the screen that have text, so the parts of the screen that are blank end up black. I looked at (but did not try) PaperTTY but I would like to work with the linux terminal rather than a terminal emulator.
I'm not sure how to go about this, but it seems like I need to adjust a more low level setting so that something like
tput setab 0 would result in a white background (or something like that).
If it affects anything, I am on Arch Arm and bash.
