You know, I asked this very same question on June 7.


It was ignored.

After it was ignored, I researched a bit more it and fixed it for 
myself. And kept it to myself because no one seemed interested. I 
replied yesterday to this thread's originator who had the same issue 
that I experienced.

I told him to change color4 from DodgerBlue to something darker in his 
Xresources file.  Simple answer to a simple question that no one here 
seemed to want to help me with.  In other words, guys, you had the 
answer yesterday.


I've been following this thread and I really can't believe that there 
were so many replies that just didn't answer the question!

I've been using FreeBSD since the 2.0 days, quite happily, and quite 
quietly.  I even shoveled my hard earned money out for CD sets to help 
the cause.

I guess what I'm trying to say is the FreeBSD mailing lists used to be 
about helping each other, and lately, it's a lot more of "Look how 
brilliant I am."

Now let's end this thread.
