Installation Instructions:

  1. Its very simple! Simply run your gEdit and go to Edit – Preferences – Font and Colors tab.
  2. Under the Color Scheme list, click the Add… button and select this downloaded Tinge.xml file from wherever you saved/moved it to.

  2. Hello, a really nice theme but I found one problem. If you are using the “current line highlight” you have set a “less_gray” color, which makes imposible to see the fonts (which are set to white).

    I just replaced that color.


  3. The selected color scheme cannot be installed.

    I got this error.. but I can easily install other themes .. someone please help ?
