Changing Text colors
LXTerminal does not allow for changing the color palette of text.
For example, if you need to change the colors in Vim
Either change the background color to white, do the following steps: Download the desert256 vim color theme from vim.org/scripts place the theme file in ~/.vim/colors (create the directory) After you have downloaded the desert256 file to ~/.vim/colors/desert256.vim
add this into ~/.vimrc:
if &term!="xterm" set t_Co=256 " use 256 colors in vim colorscheme desert256 " an appropriate color scheme endif
