Bug Description

Well, I had to use Gnome terminal until elementary's terminal has some sort of setup functionality (or profiles like Gnome terminal). At the moment the terminal is unusable due to the standard colors - this makes the blue color scheme of mc unreadable. And, believe it or not, mc is THE most used app here and I assume I'm not the only one.

I'm not sure what mc is, but I agree the default theme is not good enough for active use. Luckily you can change the color scheme using the dconf-editor.

Here's an example of a nice gnome-like theme with a touch of elementary in it.

Hi Samu

mc is the Midnight Commander - a tool which I use frequently in a terminal. Actually a Linux without mc is no Linux ;)

(try sudo apt-get install mc)

And thanks so much for the colour codes, I'll try them.

I agree, the color scheme is especially terrible for those with poor vision, which is disappointing since most of the apps in elementary are very good about visual design.

Or use gogh (https://github.com/Mayccoll/Gogh) to customize the terminal
