PRs accepted here :)

Though I should probably cleanup the contribution, since it looks like it has a lot of other arbitrary files in there.

The source repo includes a folder called "example-colors":

└── linux-vt-setcolors
    ├── example-colors
    │   ├── solarized
    │   ├── solarized-light
    │   ├──
    │   │   ├── base16
    │   │   ├── collection
    │   │   ├──

    │   └── tomorrow-jellybean

Please change the PKGBUILD or the upstream Makefile to include it. It should end up in something like /usr/share/setcolors/ or /usr/share/doc/set/colors.

It's very unconfortable, to install the package and then have to go back to the internet to hunt and peck for colorschemes just to try some.

A Big Thanks to evanpurkhiser for this tool, the example color files and the AUR package.

This should be in,

I was trying to use "setvtrgb" and mess with those /sys/module/vt/parameters/default color files, but never understood that syntax and got horrible "themes".

Then I found this cool and usefull "frontend". Keep up the good work on tools like these for all of us console (color) lovers.

mxfm: You may want to try

Good day. I propose to ship a systemd service file which can be enabled during boot.

Should be fixed
