Solarized Colorscheme for Mate Terminal
Scripts for setting the Solarized color set with Mate Terminal. Based on the scripts by Sigurd Gartmann email@example.com and Paul Thomson firstname.lastname@example.org, based on colors by Ethan Schoonover email@example.com.
Notes about color settings in Mate Terminal
In Mate terminal, you can add or edit profiles from the menu bar. However, this functionality is not easliy available from command line. Here, you'll find a script that will set the palette colors, foreground, background and highlight colors to a light or dark color scheme, overwriting a color profile you choose.
There is no uninstall option as that would probably make the scripts a few
times bigger than what they are today. However, if you are completely lost, you
can reset all profiles to a kind of "factory default", which may be different
from the profile that came with your distribution:
matetool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/mate-terminal
Code contributions to make an uninstall option or adding new profiles through the script, will be highly appreciated.
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.

Or, for the dark theme
Make sure you are creating a new profile if you do not want to lose your original color profile, as we do not provide any uninstall option.
