Announcing a nice-looking dark theme, Tinge color scheme for gEdit (Text Editor for GNOME):

Tinge (v1.0)

Tinge Logo - Curvy ain't it?

Preview (In Python):

Tinge preview - In Python!

Download Instructions:

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.
  3. You’re done! Enjoy the colors as you develop! ;)

Named it Tinge just for fun and cause it really just a tinge more than the Darkmate. Also inspired by Monokai’s theme here.

  6. [...] am working on adding several language options to a much-more pretty Tinge theme (For gedit / gtksourceview 2). You can expect the new version to it soon, with more pretty colors. Rich colored yet simple syntax [...]

  8. 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.
