I upgraded to Leopard a couple of days ago, and was reminded how hard it is to read the default blue colour in Terminal on a black background. Mike Solomon’s TerminalColors was written for Tiger’s Terminal and so doesn’t work with Leopard, so here is my SIMBL hack for Leopard’s Terminal – it allows customisation of ANSI colours on a per-profile basis

  1. Make sure you have SIMBL installed – follow Allan’s instructions for Input Manager support on Leopard

  2. Download

  3. Extract to ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins

  4. Restart Terminal and click the More… button in the Text tab of Settings
