I've just installed solorized colors in gnome-terminal. I haven't read the
whole README file, so I didn't know that there is no unistall option. As you
can imagine I only had one profile, so I could not delete the solorized
profile and return back to the saved one.

I've spent several minutus finding how to restore the default colors in
gnome-terminal. Here I've found the solution:

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/gnome-terminal

After this experience I think that 2 thins should be done in this project:

  1. Write in the docs the command that can restore the terminal
  2. Write in the output of install.sh script the warning that there is no
    uninstall and the user should create new profile.

@bessarabov Thank you! I didn't know of the recursive-unset. It would of course reset everything, so a warning in the install.sh is needed. And a clearer/earlier notification in the README. Yes, you are right.

Great! I'm happy you agree with my proposal =)
