Prot16 themes for XFCE4 Terminal

Pleasant colours for the command line

XFCE4 is my favourite desktop environment on Arch Linux. Its default terminal emulator—the XFCE4 Terminal—is a fine piece of software that I use all the time. So here is a minor contribution to the project: a port of my collection of colour schemes (aka “Prot16”).


1. With git

Enter the following command in your terminal:

git clone ~/.local/share/xfce4/terminal/colorschemes --depth 1

2. Manually

Download the latest release and extract the contents into the following directory (create the folders if necessary).


Pro tip: you can establish the full path from the command line. Just run mkdir -p ~/.local/share/xfce4/terminal/colorschemes


Open the XFCE4 Terminal, navigate to Preferences > Colours. The themes should be available in the Presets section.

You can contribute to the project’s git repository. Suggestions should concern the implimentation of the colour schemes, not the colour values themselves.
