Change Konsole/Alacritty Highlighted color

In the konsole and alacritty terminal I would like to change the yellow highlighting and possibly the text color when the line/text gets highlighted during selection


I was going thought starship config but I am unable to find the setting for it

Current starship config-

## FIRST LINE/ROW: Info & Status

[username]
format = " [╭─$user]($style)@"
style_user = "bold red"

For Konsole did you try switching to another Color Scheme within Konsole's configuration panel?

That's what I do as soon as I install a Garuda on a machine, as I find there is too many red around. The switch is instant and permanent.

Now yours is much different to begin with, was it like that when you installed it? Just curious.

EDIT: Or maybe what you're asking is to change the color of ONLY the highlighted (currently yellow-orange on your pic) and the text within that highlighted line?
Still possible through Color Schemes, but you need to find the right custom spot and not just change the Color Scheme entirely.

yes i currently want to change the yellow-white part. But I am interested in changing the theme too. As you said the large amount of red is unnerving and screams at me

Also this is the default config and I only changed the time part and enabled it, the rest were present out of the box

Could be just a color washout thing due to posting the screenshot, or my monitor here changes colors a bit. lolll

So yes, in Konsole's menu you can edit that from the Configuration option. Now I could provide a much better step-by-step later today or tonight once I access my powerful Garuda. :slight_smile:

Unless I can find those steps on Whoogle, I'm totally sure there is a short tuto somewhere, though.

Alacritty I can't remember how to change it, I think it's from alacritty.yml.

Take a look here, it's a good start with the screenshots at the end.

Instead of SET AS DEFAULT, click EDIT a few buttons up.

Alright. I also changed to catppuccin theme and the highlight is now in lavendar color. Not exactly what I am looking for, but a step in the right direction. Maybe I have to edit the colorscheme files directly to get the desired effect
