The biggest collection of themes for Terminator in a plugin.


1. Install the requests python package

 pip install requests

Note: If you're using python 3, ignore the previous command and install the python2-requests package for your specific OS.

2. Create plugins directory if it does not exist

 mkdir -p $HOME/.config/terminator/plugins

3. Getting the correct plugin

For terminator >= 1.9

 wget -O $HOME"/.config/terminator/plugins/"

For terminator < 1.9

 wget -O $HOME"/.config/terminator/plugins/"

4. Activation

Check the TerminatorThemes option under terminator > preferences > plugins.


  • Open the terminator context menu and select Themes.
  • Select you favorite theme and click install (you can preview available themes before installing).
  • Enjoy! 😃

Setting a Default

There are two ways to set a chosen theme as a default:

Option One: Edit Terminator Config Manually

Once you install a theme it's stored in Preferences > Profiles. To change an installed theme to the default one open ~/.config/terminator/config and replace the [[default]] theme with your preferred theme under the [profiles] setting. (thanks @jacsmith21)

Option Two: Use the GUI

If you do not want to deal with the modification of the configuration file, you can do the following:

  1. Go to Preferences
  2. Choose the Layouts tab.
  3. Choose your preferred layout.
  4. Choose the layout terminal (in the next column).
  5. Choose you preferred profile.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
