Xterm Colors

An update to my previous xterm colors page, removed duplicates and fixed issues with two word colors. These colors are from the command “showrgb” and can be used for various X11 things. The primary spot I use them is for foreground color and background color in xterm.

Example set Color in Xterm

xterm -fg LightGoldenrod1 -bg CornflowerBlue

If you want the color value, use Firebug or Chrome Extension, View Source or if on Linux, check out the gpick color picker tool.

  1. Thanks for this guide. I have access to many shell accounts, and to keep myself sane and quick idea on what computer I am on, I have been using diffident fg colors for each computer. Helps resolve the issue where one day I went to run XV to take a screen shoot I opened it in on xterm and then after taking the screen grab I was in a second xterm and could not find the file I had just saved. Now I am using the diffident colors to visually see that they are different computers.

  2. I really love your site.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you create this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my own personal blog and would love
    to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called.
    Appreciate it!
