zypper full colour possible


Is it at all possible to have full colour support in zypper’s output, like for example, doing zypper se vlc would produce a coloured list rather then the default white.
I uncommented the section in zypper.conf, it didn’t produce any results.

Any help would be appreciated.



Read the entire config file.

Towards the end there are also pkglistHighlight and pkglistHighlightAttribute you probably need to uncomment and set values.

I’d expect there should be a guide somewhere if this isn’t described better in a MAN page…


Thanks. I will investigate further.
