gnome-terminal overrides colors set through xterm escape sequences in shell startup
Submitted by Daniel Miranda
Using any scripts which output xterm control sequences to change terminal colors work when manually run in an existing terminal, but don't when placed in a shell startup script (e.g. .bashrc), I guess due to gnome-terminal setting its own colors after the scripts run, overriding the changes.
I am specifically trying to use some of the colors scripts from here:
I can confirm the commands are actually being run and working because:
a) Running the script manually in the shell prompt works b) Colors show up on startup when using the Drop Down Terminal GNOME Shell extension (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/442/drop-down-terminal/) c) Other startup commands like custom prompts work fine.
But placing them in .bashrc results in a terminal with the default colors (which I have not changed from the Fedora 19 standard configs).
Relevant program versions:
GNOME Terminal 3.8.4 GNU bash, version 4.2.45(1)-release (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) Fedora 19 x86-64
