Feature changed by: Chris Cunningham (eagles500) Feature #310464, revision 5 Title: Changer text console color
openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed Priority Requester: Important
Requested by: Максим Муруев (slimy)
Description: Feature for yast change console color. And green color for console by default. I think green is opensuse color. For first console stay white, for best look boot log.
Discussion: #1: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-09-02 19:01:10) It's a psychological thing. A color's brightness × area covered by said color = desired to be minimal for the background color. And that happens to be black or blue in most cases; for graphical feebles white seems to be also acceptable, but staring at a brightcolored background.. I'm just waiting for everybody to get nuts. Try it yourself... xterm -bg "#FF00FF". Everybody knows that. You will find many console applications - especially from the DOS area - that used blue as a background (in case they did not use black).
#2: nick skeen (ns89) (2010-09-05 18:57:10) Green can be a hard color for some people to see. It's one of the most common colors affected by colorblindness. So I'm not sure this would be a good idea.
#3: Marcel Witte (balta3) (2010-09-06 11:47:20) I also think green by default would be not a good idea. But a simple configuration-option in yast would be very nice. So everyone can set this to a color he likes, I would prefer other colors like this antique white to black ;)
+ #4: Chris Cunningham (eagles500) (2010-09-11 14:49:11) + dont know green is one of the colors that is most affected by color + blindness and it is the color that displays have the hardest time + reproducing.
