Re: How to Make Colored Text in Terminator???

Yes that's what the link should get you
You'll need to edit the.bashrc file as the arch wiki.
You could try a search here too.

The other thing is syntax highlighting. For example editing,
If they are set enabling the colour should make man page in colour right away.
I'd post you mine but I'm on the tablet :-)

Thanks so much wuxmedia. I'll be sure to follow that arch guide, it seems simple enough. Thanks for the help and the vocabulary lesson.

If I remember correctly, Terminator right click preferences allows custom terminal colours, which would otherwise be accessed through terminatorrc or something...... Or make an .Xdefaults

Re: How to Make Colored Text in Terminator???

i'm not sure what Sabayon does in their setup, however depends on what you're using to view / edit text files.  If you're using VIM, you may need to install VIM.  Yes, Vi comes included by default, but without installing VIM, you'll get no syntax highlighting.  So install VIM, then navigate to

/etc/vim/vimrc

and uncomment syntax on and other stuff.  Read through it.   Restart your shell. 

If you use nano, there is a nanorc, but I don't have any experience messing with that.

Re: How to Make Colored Text in Terminator???

this is the bit, if you're having trouble with the arch wiki.

# set a fancy prompt (non-color, unless we know we "want" color)
case "$TERM" in
    xterm-color) color_prompt=yes;;
esac

# uncomment for a colored prompt, if the terminal has the capability; turned
# off by default to not distract the user: the focus in a terminal window
# should be on the output of commands, not on the prompt
force_color_prompt=yes

if [ -n "$force_color_prompt" ]; then
    if [ -x /usr/bin/tput ] && tput setaf 1 >&/dev/null; then
	# We have color support; assume it's compliant with Ecma-48
	# (ISO/IEC-6429). (Lack of such support is extremely rare, and such
	# a case would tend to support setf rather than setaf.)
	color_prompt=yes
    else
	color_prompt=
    fi
fi

if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;36m\]\u@\h\[\033[01;36m\]:\[\033[01;36m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\u@\h:\w\$ '

fi
unset color_prompt force_color_prompt

this too;

# enable color support of ls and also add handy aliases
if [ -x /usr/bin/dircolors ]; then
    test -r ~/.dircolors && eval "$(dircolors -b ~/.dircolors)" || eval "$(dircolors -b)"
    alias ls='ls --color=auto'
    #alias dir='dir --color=auto'
    #alias vdir='vdir --color=auto'

    #alias grep='grep --color=auto'
    #alias fgrep='fgrep --color=auto'
    #alias egrep='egrep --color=auto'
fi

make sure you back up your .bashrc,

cp ~/.bashrc ~/.bashrc.bak

just in case glasses
