Description

The default colors are black text on white with color enabled text. That means ls output is hard to read because it shows files in green. To fix this I need to switch to black background and wheat foreground.

The default terminal app launched from the pmsui package uses -bg black -fg wheat .

The default xinitrc for the dev platform is using openbox so we just need to update src/buildroot/skeleton/etc/X11/xinitrc to change the default of the starting terms.

To change them overall in the dev platform (for all terminals) we need to install an .Xdefaults in skeleton/root/.
