Gedit 3.10 in Linux Mint 17 (Ubuntu trusty) has a gray-ish background (it is not white). You can see the white background if you apply the "Kate" theme. However, no other theme has the syntax highlighting of the "Classic" theme, and that is why I have to stay with the "Classic" theme. Is there any way to change Gedit 3.10 backround to be white? In Ubuntu 14.04 there is no such issue, the background is white by default.
Edit: I think I have found a possible solution (haven't tested it thoroughly tho).
a)Install Gedit 3.10 in LM17 (or use the script above)
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge gedit
sudo apt-get purge gedit-common
sudo apt-get install gedit-common/trusty
sudo apt-get install gedit/trusty
b)Download the attached .zip file and unzip its .xml content somewhere.
c)Open gedit, Tools->Preferences->Fonts and Colors . Click the "+" button in the bottom left corner, to install a new theme. Navigate to the .xml file, and install it.
