Darker Ubuntu theme for screen-profiles

January 26, 2009

As requested, there is now an ubuntu-dark theme for Ubuntu’s screen-profiles. This allows you to choose between light-on-dark, or dark-on-light colors for the window panel and the status panel across the bottom of your screen.

Make sure you have at least screen-profiles_1.15-0ubuntu1, which you can retrieve from:

And then run:

$ select-screen-profile

Select a screen profile:
1. plain
2. ubuntu-light ---- recommended
3. ubuntu-dark

Choose: 1-3 [2]: 3

If your terminal is also configured for light-on-dark, or if you’re on a tty console, your screen should look something like this:

Thanks to Tyler Willingham for the suggestion and the patch/branch in Launchpad.

    Hi Dustin. I think these screen profiles are fantastic – certainly come in very useful, and the helper tool to set up automatic screen is great.

    One question though – is there an easy way to disable the F-Key shortcuts? I use htop, which has it’s own F-Key mappings – but screen takes them over. Cheers.

    Good question. Please open a bug in Launchpad and I’ll see what I can for you 😉
