Select a Color Scheme

By default, Reflection X includes only one color scheme that is automatically referenced by each new session definition. This default scheme works for many client applications. However, if you have created other color schemes to satisfy client application requests for specific color names, or to change the look and feel of an application, you will need to select which scheme to use when you create a session definition.


Not all X clients request colors by name — many clients request colors by RGB value or other methods, instead of specifying a color name. Changing the color scheme changes the colors the X server displays only when clients request colors by name.

To select an alternate color scheme from X Manager or the Administrative Console

  1. (Administrative Console only) Click the Domain Definitions tab.

  2. In the left pane, select a session.

  3. Click the Display tab.

  4. From the Color scheme list, select a scheme that is compatible with the client application to which you are connecting.


    The Color Scheme list includes the default color scheme, all of the schemes you have created or imported, and all of the public schemes created by the administrator(s).
