I'm so confused and I've been pulling my hair out for hours now. I've been trying to get my bash text to have the same color as I do on my desktop, it works fine in the default terminal app on mac, although on iTerm2 (which is what I used), the colors are faded and gross.
I've checked my $TERM variable and it's set to 'xterm-256color' as well as my report terminal type in preferences on iterm.
Here is a comparison for reference, the top is iterm and the bottom is terminal (both using the same PS1=blahblah)
If anyone has ANY ideas please, please, help me. I'm going to go bald trying to fix this. I'm so frustrated.
