I upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 and enabled prompt colors in the terminal (it isn't default for 14.04 and that setting stayed with me through the upgrade). The problem is that I don't quite know what color it should be. Everything I try seems a bit off. Can someone who installed a fresh version of 16.04 give me the hex value? Instructions to find it are as follows:

  1. Open Terminal (ctrl+alt+t)
  2. Click on Edit>Profile Preferences
  3. Click on Colours
  4. Click the box circled below
