Code::Blocks Oblivion

Code::Blocks is a cross-platform programming editor/IDE written using wxWidgets. I use it to program in C++ with wxWidgets in Linux and cross-compiling with MinGW to win32.

By default it comes with a white theme, while I prefer darker colors for programming. So I put together a color scheme that suits me better, following the Oblivion Tango color theme available in Gedit by default, with a few changes. Here's what it looks like:

If you want to try it, get the file codeblocks_oblivion.conf and use the command cb_share_config to merge it into your ~/.codeblocks/default.conf .

Thanks, exactly what I was looking for.
Follow the steps of the GUI tool and the default scheme will be overwritten and thus active once you start CB. No need to mess with the settings. Although maybe it would be nice to change the .conf so that it adds oblivion so a selection is possible. But it's just xml so that should be easy.

Actually, you also need to set the caret to a light color afterwards.
