setvtrgb

customize the console color map

setvtrgb vga

setvtrgb FILE|-

setvtrgb sets the console color map in all virtual terminals according to custom values specified in a file or standard input. With the `vga' parameter, it can also be used to restore the settings built into the kernel.

When invoked with a filename or `-', setvtrgb expects input as follows:

color0_r,color1_r,...,color15_r color0_g,color1_g,...,color15_g color0_b,color1_b,...,color15_b

where colorN_{r,g,b} is the red/green/blue portion of the respective color in decimal notation in the 0..255 range. To pre-seed a file in the correct format, you can use

cat /sys/module/vt/parameters/default_{red,grn,blu}

The meanings of the color values are defined as follows:

+--------+--------+---------+ | Normal | Bright | Color | +--------+--------+---------+ | 0 | 8 | Black | | 1 | 9 | Red | | 2 | 10 | Green | | 3 | 11 | Yellow | | 4 | 12 | Blue | | 5 | 13 | Magenta | | 6 | 14 | Cyan | | 7 | 15 | White | +---------------------------+
