You can try to define the mapping of terminal colors to X-colors with X-resources. You can even do this for 3 different resource class names and switch theses with some changes in xt5250. I have in my .Xresources: xt5250*color0: seashell xt5250*color1: #330000 xt5250*color2: #000000 xt5250*color3: #333300 xt5250*color4: #000033 xt5250*color5: #330033 xt5250*color6: #003333 xt5250*color7: black xt5250*color8: green xt5250*color9: #660000 xt5250*color10: #333333 xt5250*color11: #666600 xt5250*color12: darkblue xt5250*color13: #660066 xt5250*color14: #003366 xt5250*color15: black xt5250*cursorColor: red2 and the terminal comes up with a very different color scheme. With an additional xt5250-2*color0: azure . . . and an xt5250 which calls xterm with -T "xt5250-2" you should get a terminal with azure blue background. -- Esda Feinstrumpffabrik GmbH Frank Richter, Leiter EDV Hauptstr. 76, D-09392 Auerbach E-Mail: email@example.com
