I’m not very much into suse linux, only lately for a couple of times. However, I want to share these settings to be injected on each and every new system for essential readabilty of some console screens. Problem is, for some apps, midnight commander and yast so far, the default color scheme settings provide that less contrast, see below, that you’re literally guessing pixels instead of just reading text.
As given in the referenced posts, only small tweaks are actually necessary to achieve much better results, I’ll give examples as well, so go for it, don’t postpone to the next and the next and the next… login 😉
