# How to fix elementary terminal color pallette?

I am using elementary 5.1.7 When I run msgcat --color=test it shows Yellow, green and cyan are off. I believe that the elementary terminal colour scheme is a problem because when I ssh from my MacBook to the Elementary desktop, I get normal output.

I can set the palette using dconf. However, I don't know where to get the defaults.

Where can I get those colours?

You can reset the default palette with gsettings reset as follows:

gsettings reset io.elementary.terminal.settings palette

• I misunderstood the question, my bad. I'm glad you were able to get that figured out! – jwillikers Mar 9 at 12:25

I've found that this color palette is default in elementary. I decided to copy palette from iterm2:

gsettings set io.elementary.terminal.settings palette '#000000:#c91b00:#00c200:#c7c400:#0225c7:#c930c7:#00c5c7:#feffff:#676767:#ff6d67:#5ff967:#fefb67:#6871ff:#ff76ff:#5ffdff:#c7c7c7'


It gives colors that in the end resemble rainbow much better
