I've been using terminator off late instead of the default Gnome Terminal

I know of this method to apply current terminal color schemes on an other PC's terminal.

On the system with the colors and settings you want, run:

gconftool-2 --dump '/apps/gnome-terminal' > gnome-terminal-conf.xml

Then on the other machines, run

gconftool-2 --load gnome-terminal-conf.xml

Can a similar method be used to apply the Gnome Terminal settings (Intereseted in: color scheme) to Terminator ?

I know I'm talking about 2 different programs, I'd be glad if it could be achived..
