Running Linux Mint 17.1 with KDE. I use Konsole/Bash as my terminal, and I configured a nice colorscheme. I would like to export this colorscheme so that I can use the exact same scheme on another machine.

How do I export my colorscheme/terminal appearance settings?

  • For GNOME ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/%gconf.xml file contains the information about you terminal preference. No idea about KDE – SHW Sep 14 '16 at 9:34
  • Also your Gnome instructions work for older Gnome releases only. Newer ones use dconf. – egmont Sep 14 '16 at 10:08
  • I thought for Gnome it was gconf for Gnome 2, gsettings and dconf for Gnome 3? – the_velour_fog Sep 14 '16 at 10:12
  • I'm running KDE, not Gnome. – Newb Sep 14 '16 at 16:28

I have never used KDE, but it seems to me that configuration files are stored in either ~/.config (on KDE5) or ~/.kde4 (on KDE4). So you will want to find Konsole's configuration within there, and archive the file somewhere.
