Re: Changing colors


On a normal text console, if i do any of:
  mc -C yellow,green
  mc -C normal=yellow,green
  mc -c -C normal=yellow,green

then i still get a blue background and grey/white text.

That's the expected result for "mc -C yellow,green"

I just tried:  mc -C yellow,green today and it worked on a normal
console and in an xterm. Don't know why it didn't before.

It doesn't work for me (CVS version of mc).  I mean, it has no effect.  
Unfortunately, there is no error message about invalid command line.

xterm uses its own colors.  Read documentation for xterm to change
them or use another terminal that supports palette switching, such as
konsole and gnome-terminal.

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

Sometime it also helps to read the parts of the message you are quoting.  
"man xterm" describes how to set standard colors.

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?

If you mean "quick view", it is affected by the "normal" attribute.
I used "mc -C normal=yellow,green" and took this screenshot:
