Emacs seems to use the 16 colors which were defined in a color scheme inside the terminal emulator as default.
This works well, I would not want to switch to a whole emacs color profile. E.g I can specify the color of a "component" in emacs with a fixed color name or value like so:
(set-face-background 'mode-line "purple")
Is it also possible to tell Emacs to use one of the 16 defaults for this? like "color01" or sth.?
