Bug Description

I have noticed that the blue in my LS_COLORS used for directories (via "di=01;34") is too dark when using byobu, but looks good when used with screen or no multiplexer.

I've tracked it down to the following entry in /usr/share/byobu/profiles/common:

    attrcolor b ".I"

The screen(1) man page says about this: "Use bright colors for bold text. Most terminal emulators do this already."

It also says: "i" stands for high-intensity foreground color and "I" for high-intensity background color

Using ".i" or not removing this line altogether from the config fixes it for me.

The reason for adding this line is mentioned in bug #409353 where it says: "allow bold colors - necessary for some reason"

I cannot see why bold colors would/should not work without this setting, but can only see that it causes different color intensity.

Thanks. I don't see where it's making any difference in the default Ubuntu color setup. I'll drop it to "i" at your request. Thanks.
