Tempus Themes for Xterm
DEPRECATION NOTICE — MOVED TO GITLAB.
Xterm stores colour values in the
~/.Xresources. This document will walk you through the process.
We use the command line
Start by cloning the
tempus-themes-xterm repo and entering it (unless you prefer copy-pasting, in which case adapt accordingly):
git clone https://github.com/protesilaos/tempus-themes-xterm.git --depth 1 && cd tempus-themes-xterm
Adding colours to Xresources
Now you want to append the content of the theme to your
.Xresources. You need to append it, otherwise you will overwrite its contents. As such, run the following command, substituting [SCHEME-NAME] with the one you want:
cat [SCHEME-NAME] >> ~/.Xresources
For example, if you want
cat tempus_winter.Xcolors >> ~/.Xresources
It is important to note the use of
>>. It is the command that appends the content to the file. Be careful if you are typing this. A single
> will overwrite the file's contents.
Whatever method you use, do not forget to reload the configurations, with the command
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources (may need to close all terminals and re-open them).
For all available ports, refer to the main Tempus themes repo.
