Forum:Ubuntu terminal displays bold texts instead of actual bright colors??

I wanted to use my own color palettes, so I right-clicked on the Ubuntu terminal and went to Profiles -> Profile Preferences -> Palette -> Color Palettes, and set the colors.

But when I telnet to alt.org, the terminal displays bold texts instead of actual bright colors. (bold black instead of dark grey, bold red instead of orange, bold silver instead of white, etc.)

Also, walls and floors are displayed just as the default text color, which is plain white, instead of silver. How do I fix these problems? --NDos (talk) 06:40, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Try setting the enviromnent variable TERM=xterm. - Andrio Celos (talk) 06:42, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
That's not a NetHack option. What's that? --NDos (talk) 07:36, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
You can set environment variables in a lot of shells using syntax like this: export TERM=xterm or TERM=xterm ssh nethack@nethack.alt.org. - Andrio Celos (talk) 07:40, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Adding that line to ~/.bashrc works. Thank you very much! --NDos (talk) 07:52, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
Just be aware that that would make it work by default for anything you start with that shell. - Andrio Celos (talk) 07:54, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
