I've installed htop with :

brew install htop

But when I run it with sudo htop, the user column is not fully displayed. Some parts are missing.

How to display it correctly?

P.S.: I'm using the Homebrew Terminal profile.


Go to the menu Terminal -> Preferences... -> Profiles -> Text

and select Use bright color for bold text

Now you can see everything.

  • Hmm, I tried to replicate this behaviour, but could not see that "the user column is not fully displayed". Are you saying that you're just getting black text on a black background (which the "Homebrew" profile would have)? – jstarek Aug 24 '16 at 10:14
  • Yes, exactly black on black and when I move the selection bar on a line, I can read again the text. I'm using Terminal 2.6.1 (361.1) – Ortomala Lokni Aug 24 '16 at 14:19
