NAME

setvtrgb - set the virtual terminal RGB colors  

SYNOPSIS

setvtrgb vga|[FILE]  

DESCRIPTION

The setvtrgb command takes a single argument, either the string "vga", or a path to a file containing the red, green, and blue colors to be used by the Linux virtual terminals.

If you use the FILE parameter, FILE should be exactly 3 lines of 16 comma-separated decimal values for RED, GREEN, and BLUE.

To seed a valid FILE:
  cat /sys/module/vt/parameters/default_{red,grn,blu} > FILE

And then edit the values in FILE.
