Solarized Colorscheme for Gnome Terminal
Scripts for setting the Solarized color set with Gnome Terminal. To get nicely colored directory listings, you will also need to set up a dircolors solarised color theme.
For Mate Terminal, you can use mate-terminal-colors-solarized, maintained by @cledoux.
Only the foreground, background and highlight colors are different in the light and dark color sets, as one of the main ideas behind Ethan Schonoovers work is to use the same colors in the palette for both.
See the Solarized homepage for theory behind the colors, screenshots, details and colorscheme versions for Vim, Mutt, popular terminal emulators and other applications.
Installation and usage
To be able to uninstall, we highly recommend that you create a new Gnome Terminal profile, using the menus in Gnome Terminal.
You need the
dconf command (if you run a recent Gnome version). With Ubuntu,
this can be installed by running
$ sudo apt-get install dconf-cli
Then you can run the installation script:
And just follow the instructions.
You can also run the
set_light.sh script, to directly set
the dark or light solarized theme to the actived gnome-terminal profile.
Change to another profile in Gnome Terminal, then remove the Solarized profile by running:
Gnome 3.6 or lower
$ rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Solarized/ $ gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/gnome-terminal
Gnome 3.8 or higher
Be sure to have the dconf-cli package installed and do:
$ dconf reset -f /org/gnome/terminal/legacy/profiles:/PROFILE_ID"
Replace PROFILE_ID by your profile ID (you can get it in your profile configuration in gnome-terminal).
Each theme has is own folder in the
colors dir. It contains the following
- bd_color: bold color
- bg_color: background color
- fg_color: foreground color
- palette: list of colors for all standard color codes.
No additional configuration is needed to add a theme, the installation script
just list at launch the children folders in the
