Topic: How do you change the Arduino GUI colours? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


How do I change the awful red-on-black colour scheme used in the error pane of the Arduino GUI?  It's unreadable.  I've looked in preferences.txt but can't find anything that looks appropriate,


Have a look in - Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/lib/theme/theme.txt

It'll be something similar in Windows and Linux

You can change all of them in there as far as I can tell:)


I don't seem to be able to find theme.txt in any of the JAR files in the built executable, where does it end up?


In my case, it's C:\Documents and Settings\<userid>\My Documents\arduino-0017\lib\theme\theme.txt. Look for the file under where you installed the Arduino IDE.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
