Change the color scheme

gedit includes several different color schemes, allowing you to change the appearance of the main text window.

To change the color scheme:

  1. Press the menu button in the top-right corner of the window and select Preferences ▸ Font & Colors.

  2. Choose your desired color scheme.

The new color scheme will be applied immediately.

Use a Custom Color Scheme

You can also use color schemes that have been created by others, or create and use your own color schemes.

Instructions on how to install custom color schemes, as well as examples of color schemes that you can download and use, are available on the gedit wiki.
