Ubuntu – Make gedit embedded terminal colours the same as the default terminal

command linegedit

I've just updated to 11.10 and now my embedded terminal in gedit does not match my default terminal. I hate looking at a white and black terminal. Does anyone know how to make the embedded terminal match the default terminal?

This is a screenshot:

    • background-color
    • foreground-color
