Thank you, I am getting there.
The only reason I used root was because it happened to be open, did not even think about I might get 'his' .bashrc, so I am now glad the it failed. That empty last line well, totally forgotten about that.Your
way is working fine now and I like the options to set up some really good contrasting combinations. (John BEE will have to wait until need a challenge to decode, does not work at all)
I noticed when I checked right now and changed to light blue that I have not had the last line empty, but it was a comment line. Can it be that the empty line after each of your selections will safeguard operation in such a case, my thinking the comments would have no influence on running
Can I add something in your lines to define the background colour ? I remember when in pclos2009 I went to my dt6 I had 4 terminal popping up on start, two su and two normal, the su were waiting on password and had light yellow/brown background. I am pretty sure that would have been you instructions at the time as I was not too sure what I was doing. Now I know it can be done but forget where, oh what fun.
