Xterm defaults to black text, the ''foreground'' color, on a white ''background.''  The foreground and background colors can be reversed using the [[#VT Options menu|VT Options menu]] or with the {{ic|-rv}} command line option.
$ xterm -rv
{{Note|Colors for applications that use the X libraries may be specified in many different ways.
Some colors can be specified by assigned names.  If {{Pkg|emacs}} or {{Pkg|vim}} has been installed, you can examine {{ic|/usr/share/emacs/24.2/etc/rgb.txt}} or {{ic|/usr/share/vim/vim73/rgb.txt}} to view the list of color names with their decimal RGB values.  Colors may also be specified using hexadecimal RGB values with the format {{ic|rgb:RR/GG/BB}}, or the older and not encouraged syntax {{ic|#RRGGBB}}.
The color {{ic|PapayaWhip}} is the same as {{ic|rgb:ff/ef/d5}}, which is the same as {{ic|#ffefd5}}.
See '''man(7) X, '''from {{Pkg|xorg-docs}}, for a more complete description of color syntax.}}
Xterm's foreground color (the text color) and the background color may be set from the command line, using the options {{ic|-fg}} and {{ic|-bg}} respectively.
xterm -fg PapayaWhip -bg "rgb:00/00/80"
The first sixteen terminal colors, as well as the foreground and background colors, may be set from an [[X resources]] file:
{{bc|XTerm*foreground: rgb:b2/b2/b2
XTerm*background: rgb:08/08/08
XTerm*color0: rgb:28/28/28
! ...Lines omitted...
XTerm*color15: rgb:e4/e4/e4}}
Many suggestions for color schemes can be viewed in the forum thread, [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=51818&p=1 Terminal Colour Scheme Screenshots]
