Description of problem:
Dark blue character background (the mutt status line, for example)
shows up as light blue with xterm-191-1. Happens with foreground
Other colors seem unaffected, but I did not search the entire color space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up mutt (with default colors) in an xterm window
Actual Results: Light blue status bar
Expected Results: Dark blue status bar
Actually that's Dodger Blue, not light blue.
(See related Debian bug reports). I'll probably
change it to an in-between value in a future patch.
(For anyone who's actually inconvenienced by it,
the manpage lists resource names and default values).
Thomas: So far, most feedback for this change that I've seen from
users is positive. Most people seem to prefer the lighter shade
of blue, however some do believe it is a bit too light, so I think
your solution of using an in-between shade might be best. Since
there are users who likely prefer it one way or another, it is
pretty much impossible to get a default that everyone will like 100%,
so I would tend to agree with your proposal to choose the in-between
I'll leave ours as is and update to xterm-192 when it's avail, then
update this report for testing.
ok. It is a concern that a (supposedly) simple change has been
on my list for a couple of months, so I'll probably close this
one in #192 (this week).
I committed patch #192 last night, so the next time you update
your package this should be closed.
Updating to 192... going to leave this open for now until I update
our patch to remove our customization override.
Back to normal in xterm-192-1
no. It is still changed (a compromise).
