This patch allows you to change the background tinting
color with an escape sequence. The syntax of the escape
sequence is as follows: ESC ] 51;color BEL
color can take the same values as the -tint option.
echo -ne "\033]51;darkblue\007"
The patch only works with true tinting!
I use this to change the tinting color when login to a
server by adding the following line to the .bashrc file
on the server: export
\&quot;\033]51;darkblue\007\&quot;". You can add a similar
command to the local .bashrc file to have the color
changed back after logout.
