If, for example, you have installed the commonbox-extra styles from gentoo portage you will have many styles that contain a rootCommand and they will set the background for you. I personally hate that and like to decide what I think looks best with a style.

A simple sed command will fix this up, move to the directory where you installed the styles and run:

 $ sed -i '/^rootCommand/s|^|!|' *
