Change the color scheme

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

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. See the libgedit-gtksourceview documentation.
