I'm trying to get more colors in the terminal emulator. Mostly to get prettier syntax highlighting. I've googled quite extensively for a terminal emulator that supports 24bit colordepth and that doesn't seem to exist. And even if it did gnu screen, that I use extensively, only supports 256 colors.
An alternative approach would be to manipulate the color palette of the terminal. gnome-terminal allows this, but only for the colors in the first 16 positions of the palette. This will allow me to change palette entry 3 from the glaring #00CD00 to the more soothing #4E9A06, which makes for a nicer experience on the commandline. For syntax highlighting, however, 16 colors is a bit limited. Now I'm looking for a terminal emulator that will let me tailor the entire 256 entries of the palette.
Is there such a beast to be found?
