128. How To Set (Or Reset) Initial Terminal Colors

A: The following shell script should work for VGA consoles:

 for n in 1 2 4 5 6 7 8;                                                     
 do                                                                          
   setterm -fore yellow -bold on -back blue -store > /dev/tty$n              
 done                                                                        

Substitute your favorite colors, and use /dev/ttyS$n for serial terminals.

To make sure they are reset when people log out (if they've been changed):

Replace the references to getty (or mingetty or uugetty or whatever) in /etc/ inittab with references to /sbin/mygetty. #!/bin/sh setterm -fore yellow -bold on -back blue -store > $1 exec /sbin/mingetty $@
