Where to set terminal ANSI colors default in i3?

Hello everybody,

When I installed Manjaro i3 a couple of years ago, the color scheme used for in-terminal colors (ANSI colors) was somehow not standard.
I remember that bacjk in that time I changed some settings to restore the colors with more traditional colors.
However after the update of the system I got today, the colors revert back to the default of the i3 installation.
And I don’t remember how I changed that the last time…

Does anyone know where the colors settings of terminal ANSI codes is set?

Thank you.

As far as I know Manjaro i3 uses urxvt and xterm as the default terminal emulators and their colors are set in .Xresources

Yes, by default it’s urxvt in manjaro i3 in your home directory there is a .Xresources with this parameters :

URxvt*color0: #aabbcc
*.color0: #aabbcc

If your are not using the default terminal it can be set in the terminal setting file itself.
