[SOLVED] Import Arch-Installer Color Scheme

#1

Hello ArchLabs users,

I really like the color scheme of the installer, however, I personally find the standart theme that comes with termite after the archlabs installation more than horrendous. Is there a way to reimport that theme and set it to default for my terminals (alacritty and termite)? I couldn’t find the theme in the repos.

I think I found it:

https://bitbucket.org/archlabslinux/iso/src/c8141d6d73e8768c8acb4a617ed2ad30af881602/archlabs/airootfs/etc/skel/.zsh/settings/terminal.zsh?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default

although the config file for the terminal needs some special tweaking.

Yea that’s it, they’re for the Linux console and use the format \e]P<0-15 in hex>XXXXXX where XXXXXX is a hex color code eg. \e]P0000000 to set color 0 to black #000000 when printed as a byte sequence using printf "%b" "CODE" or echo -e "CODE", the comments to the right of each should be the hex code that can be used elsewhere.

You can also pull colours from ~/.Xresources but I don’t think they’re the same as the console colors.
