ZSH: Gentoo-completion...how to modifiy?
You have 2 choices here.
1. You can change the default terminal colours in you .Xdefaults.
As an example, for rxvt-unicode (a.k.a. urxvt), you can put this in
! tangoesque scheme
! Black (not tango) + DarkGrey
! DarkRed + Red
! DarkGreen + Green
! DarkYellow + Yellow
! DarkBlue + Blue
! DarkMangenta + Mangenta
!DarkCyan + Cyan (both not tango)
! LightGrey + White
(This was taken from
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xdefaults#Terminal_colors, but you
can find example all around).
I suggest you also to check what colour it outputs by using simple
tools like gcolor2 and if you don't like how they go, just change them
or check another "theme" somewhere. I would advise you to keep the
"type" of colours as such: meaning if you want to change the dark
yellow and the bright yellow, keep them in the yellow range. Maybe
make them a less coloured yellow or more orange-ish, but don't make
Programs rely on these 16 colours for their output, at least the
numbers, and you could end up with something unreadable (as you
suggest in your mail).
2. change your PS1 variable (maybe the easiest)
Do "echo $PS1" in a terminal, and see where the faulty colour is.
Then, change it in your .zshrc file.
You can also check this page

one (http://aperiodic.net/phil/prompt/) to get an idea of what you
could get with a Zsh prompt.
