Terminal App Theme / Colors on Mac OS X

I spent the last hour on trying to figure out how to get decent coloring into the Terminal.app on Mac OS X (because iTerm has some weird bug with Displaying Umlauts and the like), and I finally got it to work following these steps:

  • Install SIMBL.
  • Install the TerminalColors.bundle, which I recompiled so it works with the current Mac OS X 10.6 and its Terminal.app Version.
    • And by installing I mean dropping it into /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins for all users, or ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins for your account only.
  • Install a theme, for example one of the two listed below.
Night Lion Theme

Infinite Red Black Theme

This should be it. Pretty simple if you know what to do :)
