Anybody knows how I can change my terminal skin from the FC5 defalut look (white background/black ink) to something more appealing?

Thanks

Select from the terminal menu: edit → currently used profile → coulours and select what you want. For transparent terminal, go to the "effects" tab.

Sorry, I'm pretty new to Fedora...

Thanks

If you are using a GUI terminal, it will be at the top of the terminal (file edit view etc). If you are using xterm, then it requires command line options or an alias in your .cshrc or bash profile or whatever you use. (Someone else will need to explain that further). An example of command line options for xterm would be xterm -fg white -bg black (choose your colors)

When you open the terminal from your menu, (Applications → more applications → terminal), you will find the menu at the top of the window, just under the windowborder. file, edit, view, tabs, help.

edit: Oh, posted at the same time.
