[OS X 10.11, MacPorts Emacs 24.5, OS X Terminal, lots of stuff in emacs and shell init files]
I almost always use Emacs.app (GUI). Sometimes I want to open Emacs in a terminal. When I open Emacs from a terminal I get a bright green background that in combination with my usual theme is unusable -- I can't even read the messages at the bottom of the window.
I have tried this with various Terminal Profiles but they all do the same. I have tried
emacs -bg while but that doesn't work either.
How do I control the background color of Emacs opened from the terminal?
