TerminalColoreopard, Change Terminal.app ANSI Color on Leopard
Terminal.app on Leopard supports full ANSI color and multi color profile and many encodings and treat japanese correctly but, one thing – the changing the ANSI color is missing. When we use the Tiger, we can change the ANSI colors on Terminal.app using Terminal Colors Plugin. But this nice plugin cannot work with Leopard one. I tried to write same one for Leopard and now, I present it as beta version.
Snow Leopard Support
I uploaded 64bit TerminalColoreopard plugin for Snow Leopard, Mac OS X 10.6.x. It requires to install the newest version of SIMBL prior to use this plugin. If you’re using Leopard, 10.5.x, please use previous version of TerminalColoreopard.
Download and Install
- Download the package
- Double click to mount one.
- If you have never install the SIMBL which TerminalColoreopard need to work, double click SIMBL.pkg to install it.
- You confirm the Terminal.app does not work now. If not, you should quit one.
- Copy the TerminalColoreopard.bundle into (Your Home)/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins. If there are no destination, you should create one.
- Currently the color settings are shared any color profile.
- Even if you change the color using the palette, it will not affect the screen quickly. You currently refresh the screen manually.
