My Netbeans Theme – Markyh

Here is my theme that I use for netbeans. It’s a mixture of Dr. Nic’s theme with a little dark textmate stuff rolled in. I hope you like it. I use Netbeans on an Ubuntu Linux laptop and work mainly with php, ruby and javascript and using this theme has made things a lot easier. The font in the picture is FreeMono.

To install the theme, open the zip file and place the contents in the netbeans/$version/Editors directory. If you just want to use the colors and keep the same font, don’t overwrite the editor personal preferences file.


Font: FreeMono.ttf
