Some time ago, I used the Gogh to change the color themes of the Terminal. But now I want to reset or restore the default color theme, but don't know how to do that?

Are you able to click in the "gear" icon located in the top-right portion of the window and change it from there?

  • No. The "gear" allows 3 color modes, but each of them will only change the background color instead of the entire syntax theme. Thanks.

  • I think that info is in you .bashrc file (/home/username/.bashrc). Try renaming that file, logoff and back in and see if that color scheme was re-set.
