gnome-terminal: background color change may break applications
Last modified: 2015-11-19 04:02:29 EST
The GNOME rebase in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 changes the default color scheme from black-on-white to white-on-dark-grey. Previous versions (back to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 at least) used the black-on-white scheme, which means that customers will be accustomed to it, and legacy terminal applications will use colors which match it. The new color scheme could well make such applications unusable.
Yes, I agree. This is something best done in RHEL 8, in my opinion, not in a RHEL 7 point release.
I think we should fix this for 7.2
100% Correct, the lesson here is not to trust an older monitor. gnome-terminal-3.14.3-2 does indeed have a white background.
Switching to verified.
