OpenSUSE 13: Change YaST's color theme

This article will describe changing YaST's color theme in text mode.

1 My terminal color theme

My terminal color theme uses black as background and white as character. Because I feel it is hard to see character in case of black as background and blue as character, I change blue to orange in terminal settings.

In my terminal, YaST in text mode is displayed as below. Orange as background is not good for me (Blue is good).
