When I switched to tty I noticed manpages look different by using some color scheme. How to make it to gnome-terminal?

I didn't know it, but I found something here:
Instructions from the above link:
Edit your .bashrc file and add the following lines:
export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$(printf '\e[01;31m') # enter blinking mode - red export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$(printf '\e[01;35m') # enter double-bright mode - bold, magenta export LESS_TERMCAP_me=$(printf '\e[0m') # turn off all appearance modes (mb, md, so, us) export LESS_TERMCAP_se=$(printf '\e[0m') # leave standout mode export LESS_TERMCAP_so=$(printf '\e[01;33m') # enter standout mode - yellow export LESS_TERMCAP_ue=$(printf '\e[0m') # leave underline mode export LESS_TERMCAP_us=$(printf '\e[04;36m') # enter underline mode - cyan
Next, start a new terminal session or enter the command
source ~./bashrc in your current terminal.
You can have coloured man pages using the following commands:
sudo apt-get install most export PAGER="most"
Now check your man pages by
One possible way would be a manual one by Going through the Edit menu of Gnome Terminal in Menu Bar , then In Profile Preferences as here in image. You can try and play around to suite your needs.
Without needing to install
most, you can configure
less to look like this:
Add the following in your `~.bashrc':
# Have less display colours # from: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Color_output_in_console#man export LESS_TERMCAP_mb=$'\e[1;31m' # begin bold export LESS_TERMCAP_md=$'\e[1;33m' # begin blink export LESS_TERMCAP_so=$'\e[01;44;37m' # begin reverse video export LESS_TERMCAP_us=$'\e[01;37m' # begin underline export LESS_TERMCAP_me=$'\e[0m' # reset bold/blink export LESS_TERMCAP_se=$'\e[0m' # reset reverse video export LESS_TERMCAP_ue=$'\e[0m' # reset underline
If you use Oh My Zsh you can add
colored-man-pages to the
plugins array of your
