bash colors on tty and consoles

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I have defined .bashrc custom colors. Escape secuences for bold colors is "\e[1;" and the same for dark colors. So, on a real console (tty) I'll see darker colors, but on xterm/rxvt on X I'll see bold colors. Then, how can I set it to see 16 colors (8 normal/8 darker or lighter) on a X server terminal app?
