Trying to get this color scheme to work in urxvt.


#   This file echoes a bunch of color codes to the 
#   terminal to demonstrate what's available.  Each 
#   line is the color code of one forground color,
#   out of 17 (default + 16 escapes), followed by a 
#   test use of that color on all nine background 
#   colors (default + 8 escapes).

T='gYw'   # The test text

echo -e "\n                 40m     41m     42m     43m\
     44m     45m     46m     47m";

for FGs in '    m' '   1m' '  30m' '1;30m' '  31m' '1;31m' '  32m' \
           '1;32m' '  33m' '1;33m' '  34m' '1;34m' '  35m' '1;35m' \
           '  36m' '1;36m' '  37m' '1;37m';
  do FG=${FGs// /}
  echo -en " $FGs \033[$FG  $T  "
  for BG in 40m 41m 42m 43m 44m 45m 46m 47m;
    do echo -en "$EINS \033[$FG\033[$BG  $T  \033[0m";
and my xdefualts

Anyone got anything to add/fix? the color.sh doesn't show much so obviously I am doing something wrong.

If you want to check mine out it's located here.
in my crunchbang setup urxvt wasn't going with my .Xresources. Was I doing something wrong? Perhaps I'll set this and remove .Xdefaults?

edit: you are the person who gave me that wallpaper! I saw your post on the arch linux forum.

You need to run


$ xrdb ~/.Xresources
every single time you start a new Xorg session.
I personally have this line in my .xprofile which is loaded via my .xinitrc
I think I'm starting to get this now. I'm trying to setup mpd and ncmpcpp as well. So the .xprofile is set to auto load from xinitrc which automatically loads?

edit: forget about the sound part. Once I installed DWM and launched that I can play music from my laptop.

Please try to be a bit more specific, and we can try to tell you what you're doing wrong.

I try
sh color.sh
(from the directory that script is in but nothing shows up. Later I may take a screenshot.
