- Subject: Colours used in mintty
Just moved to mintty because I can't resolve problem of rxvt hanging
around after <Ctrl-D> (and despite high hopes that cygwin-1.7.3-1 would
address this, as in "Fix deadlock problem between atexit and dlclose
processing which caused some programs to hang on exit" -- oh, well).
Is there a way of changing the default text colours used by mintty for
directories, links, etc. E.g for rxvt and xterm in ~/.Xdefaults you can have
In .minttyrc I tried setting both of
Term=xterm and then Term=xterm-256color
but neither picked up the xterm settings in .Xdefaults.
Or rather, it picks up some: bg, fg, color12 (directories) and (I think)
color10 (executables). But not color14 (links). (Incidentally, is it
picking up the ones it does pick up correctly from rxvt*color?? or
xterm*color?? or somewhere else entirely?)
