The dark or the light themes are available. To install the dark version please do the following:

    $ cd xfce4-terminal-colors-solarized
    $ cp dark/terminalrc ~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc
    $ cp dark/terminalrc ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc

To install the light version go with:

    $ cd xfce4-terminal-colors-solarized
    $ cp light/terminalrc ~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc
    $ cp light/terminalrc ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc
