Bug Description

There is a unwritten-ish rule when it comes to selecting background colour.
When the background will serve for a lot of text to be displayed on it (as the case with this terminal app) people don't tned to go darker than #222222 and in this apps it's currently pitch black (000000), which breaks that rule.

summary: - The background colour is too dark

We need design to decide what is the best color scheme between DarkPastels, Linux (gray on black), BlackOnLightYellow, BlackOnWhite, GreenOnBlack, BlackOnRandomLight and WhiteOnBlack, or create a new color scheme.
