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 tempus_winter:

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.

Almost done

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).

Enjoy!
