Above, you can see the output of the
kscreen-doctor -o command on Suse Tumbleweed.
kscreen-doctor -o | cat to no avail.
Short of using a black background as a damage limiting device (still Angry Fruit Salad, but at least I can read the text), what can I do to remove the garish colors from the output?
NB I have used
kscreen doctor as an example, but there are other culprits as well. E.g.,
apt in Debian uses a bright yellow to output info during downloading, and to change the color one of the developers suggested to use A LITERAL ESCAPE CHARACTER in Apt's global configuration file
