re: Solarized + tmux + ls + bold text VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Indeed traditionally SGR 1 is unclear whether stands for bold, bright or both of them. The introduction of 256-color palette (and later even direct RGB true colors in many terminal emulators) clarify that bold is the one that makes sense. For legacy reasons, you cannot suddenly remove the brigtening effect, plenty of utilities's output would look ugly. However, the new semantics (bold only) is used in most terminal emulators if the 256-color escape sequences are used, e.g. 38;5;4 instead of 34.

gnome-terminal 3.28 (vte 0.52) introduces a new configuration option, designed especially for Solarized users, that makes bold (SGR 1) never to switch to the bright counterpart. Hopefully Terminator will add support too: bugs.launchpad.net/terminator/+bug....
