I have downloaded an external theme for netbeans. How to apply it? I am using Ubuntu 10.04(LTS)


Themes are contained in a .zip archive.

  1. Open the Options window: Tools -> Options (see picture 1)
  2. Press the Import button (see picture 1)
  3. Press the Browse button and select the theme file (a .zip archive).
  4. Tick the checkbox to select all settings (just Fonts & Colors will be fine as well, those are the themes) (see picture 2)
  5. Press OK and accept the confirmation dialog
  6. After restarting, go to Options again and select the theme at Fonts & Colors, Profile (see picture 1)
