How to use the palette config option?

Asked by seenxu on 2008-12-25

the palette option is cool, but how can I convert a #xxxxxx(6-digit) color name to a #xxxxxxxxxxxx(16-digit) name? I had tried the example palette setting from terminator_config manpage, but the config file can't be parsed during the start of terminator.

thx

As I understand it, they are 16bit colour values rather than the 8bit values used in #xxxxxx style colours. I didn't particularly want to make this more complex, but it's the format that vte/GNOME Terminal use.

For what it's worth, the current trunk of Terminator has a graphical profile editor that will (hopefully soon) be able to save a config file, at which point you can choose the colour you want and not have to care about what values it has!

Thanks Chris Jones, that solved my question.

thx for your reply and helpful tip.

just now I used the gnome-terminal profile preference to modify
gnome-terminal's colors, then copy its colorpalette stringvalue, which
resides in $HOME/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/%gconf.xml
to $HOME/.config/terminator/config, to solve my issue.
