The person that answered your other question (askubuntu.com/questions/476498/looking-for-a-terminal) mentioned that most of the colored text panes are instances of the program vim. vim is a smart editor that colors the file for you once it finds out what kind of file/script/language it is. So, in tmux, open your files using vim /path/to/file. If it's an sh file or a python file for example, you should see colors. Is that what you're asking about? What do you mean by "theme"? Which part of the screenshot exactly? –  Alaa Ali Jun 4 '14 at 11:27
