I have emacs version 23.3.1, the default color has dark purple text against a grey background which hurts my eyes.
I have read documentation* to try and look through the list of default preloaded emacs themes and pick a new color theme.
*where can I find emacs documentation specific to an older version?
I have tried M-x and the following commands, however all of them return with "[No Match]"
When I try "customize-themes" on my local terminal I can see a list of themes and can pick between them (v24.5.1).
Is there anyway to achieve this on the older version of emacs?
