I'm not seeing this in a brief test. Can you post it in comparison with another
terminal app? What color palette are you using in the terminal?
Comment 3 LH 2007-10-10 15:55:17 EDT
Gnome terminal has white on black palette. I'll put a comparison soon.

Gnome terminal vs rxvt
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-10 16:03:17 EDT
Do you have a comparison of other apps *in gnome terminal*?

Sorry. That hit my mind soon after I posted the comparison but here you have a
new one. Both are white-on-black and tango colors.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-10 16:29:54 EDT
jed by default uses the color 'black', which is the color in slot 0. vim is
using the 'background' color of the terminal.

With the tango colors, those aren't the same.
Comment 8 LH 2007-10-10 16:38:09 EDT
Thanks. Maybe I should tell the jed developers to use background or something
because this really looks like ass.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-10 21:16:51 EDT
In your .jedrc, add something like:

set_color("normal", "default", "default");                      % default fg/bg

That should fix it for this case - you may need to replace other instances of
white (for foreground) and black (for background) with 'default' as well.
