How do I install schemas(like this one; for syntax highlighting, etc) for Kate (which is originally for KDE) running on GNOME 3? Trying to install with the install.sh script took no effect. Also, if you happen to know any good schemas for Kate (for Python), please let me know.

Please take a look at

Where to get Kate color schemes?

and see if it has any answers for you.

Are you saying that appending the schema and syntaxhighlighting files to ~/.kde/share/config/kateschemarc and ~/.kde/share/config/katesyntaxhighlightingrc respectively using cat >> does not work in GNOME 3?
