Ha, I'm very new to Linux so I'm having trouble making sense of that link. I'm trying to change the background to black and the text to white. I've tried looking it up on the internet, but everything I find is specific for certain distros. I can't find any settings for the terminal used in Slacko.

This works for Lucid (but not Fatdog). Right click on console icon and click Edit Item then in window under Arguments to pass (for executable): type -bg black -fg white Close Smile

ChpFr,
Thanks for getting this out there before I was able to get back online. Smile
I can confirm it works in Slacko 5.4
You can play around with the colors too, I tested '-bg black -fg red' and it worked as well.

If white/black, then:
Code:
urxvt -rv

is a short way of get black/white.

If wanna experiment more, take a look here.
