How to Change Window Color in Ubuntu 11.10 – Gedit Themes


  1. How to change the window color (default: white) in Oneiric? (In Natty, I could do it in Appearance.)

  2. (If 1 doesn't work) How to change the background color in Gedit? (In Natty, by right clicking I could find profile or something like that.)

Best Answer

The tweakability of Oneiric has suffered due to the switch to gnome 3, so for #2:

gedit supports the themes available in package libgtksourceview2.0-common, and if you are willing to, you can create your own or download a large selection from the net.

Click on Edit/Preferences, on the preferences dialog switch to Fonts & Themes and pick a theme.
