I'm running Ubuntu from inside a VirtualBox (host=Win XP), and use the Terminal (Xfce terminal emulator v0.4.8) in order to issue commands to FreeSurfer, an analysis software package.
The problem is that these commands issue a LOT of text, and it's very hard to scroll up and find my initial command, because all the text is of the same color (white). I've used other terminals where the input/output lines were differently colored, allowing an easier detection of your own issued commands as opposed to output text.
I checked the terminal options but did not see anything helpful (I cannot attach a screenshot so I've uploaded it here: http://www.2shared.com/photo/rkjbTpQ6/20140402_12-23-42.html).
Would appreciate any help on how I can increase the visibility (discriminability) of the different types of text (input/output) in the terminal window, thanks!
