"normal" affects only regular files.  You need to redefine more colors to
change the background everywhere.

I just tried:  mc -C yellow,green  today and it worked on a normal console

The same thing happens in an xterm, but the background is a light
steel-blue that i want to make darker. What am i doing wrong?

xterm uses its own colors.  Read documentation for xterm to change them or

I've read the manuals in the /usr/doc/mc directory on debian (FAQ.gz) and
looked on the net, but there's nothing about setting the background colour.

mc --help-colors  gives a list of options, but nothing affects the
background colour of the left and right viewing panes. How can i
do this?
