Description Rex Dieter 2001-12-03 18:33:12 UTC
In all versions of pine up to and including version 4.43, the default 
/etc/pine.conf has
# Controls display of color

which makes it ignore configured terminal color schemes in KDE's konsole 
or GNOME's terminal.  

The easiest fix I found was setting it to
, which makes it correctly respect the user's redefined terminal color 

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-02-10 02:48:38 UTC
This setting may change the way PINE works by default for some users in
ways that I am not likely to encounter during normal testing.  I've
learned from past experience that changing things like this results in
many users discovering something no longer works how they are used to
it working by default, and so I am hesitant to make such a change.

Personally I dont think this level of customization fits into the
realm of general distro setup.  It is and should be a user customization
IMHO, and as I said above, changing things like this without knowing
how it affects every user on every oddball terminal out there, is
just not worth it for something that can be tweaked by those minority
of users who prefer it.


Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2002-02-10 22:29:13 UTC
For what it's worth, there was a time, though I don't remember how far back it 
was (v3.96?), that 
WAS the default.  Somewhere in the 4.x.x series, this changed.  I was 
mentioning it here only because pine's behavior had changed at some point, and 
I had received complaints from our users.
