I'm using macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and I'm having color problems when accessing a CentOS workstation.

Initially, after connecting via ssh, I would obtain the following welcome message:

enter image description here

Then I added the following commands to the bash file:

export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

and I commented the following line in /etc/ssh/ssh_config:

# SendEnv LANG LC_*

After all this the welcome message I get is without errors but still distorted:

What i should get is the following (i got it using iTerm2 3.2.9):

How can I fix the colors? The command that prints "virgo-cluster" is:

figlet -f slant virgo-cluster | lolcat -t
  • you would need to include an example of the lines the print 'virgo cluster', in order to see how they may need to be changed to work on all envs. – New Alexandria Jun 22 '19 at 18:27
  • @NewAlexandria hi, I added the command at the end of the question – Valerio Jun 22 '19 at 20:39

I believe the odd behavior is due to the fact that Terminal.app does not support True Color (16 million colors), while iTerm2 3.2.9 does. Here the result of a test code from here:

the top panel is from Terminal while the bottom one is from iTerm.
