Solarize your GNOME Terminal

Solarized dark & light themes

Solarized dark & light themes

Solarize is a colorscheme by Ethan Schoonover which is good on the eyes and allows you to spend long hours before the terminal without much strain.

Solarize your GNOME Terminal:

Install git vcs, if it is not already installed:

# aptitude install git

Then do:

$ git clone git://
$ cd gnome-terminal-colors-solarized
$ ./solarize

Now, go to GNOME Terminal & change the Profile to Solarized.

To toggle between dark & light Solarized themes run the ./solarize command.

To Solarize other terminals (konsole, xfce terminal) or you favorite editors look here & here.

Happy Hacking!
