    What do you mean exactly? Remove from where? – Hilmi Erdem KEREN Oct 20 '12 at 8:32

    I think it's clear this question is asking how to reverse changes to the terminal text color in a GNOME Terminal profile. If that's not what's being asked, please let us know @Farhad. Otherwise, I think we can keep this question open, and answer it. (I don't currently have access to a GNOME-based Ubuntu system to write a good answer, or I'd be doing that myself right about now.) – Eliah Kagan Oct 20 '12 at 14:04

Finally, found it. You need to install dconf-tools to do this. Install it with the command below:

sudo apt-get install dconf-tools

or by clicking the big download button

Install via the software center

After installation, start the dconf-editor by typing dconf-editor in the dash and select it to start.

Go to orggtksettingscolor-chooser and set the custom-colors value to [], replacing the existing long string. To replace the string, click on the value/existing string.

Now open gnome-terminal to see that the color is gone.

  • @Farhad I have updated the answer. I think, it will solve the problem. – Anwar Oct 25 '12 at 15:38
  • You can accept the answer if it solved your problem. That is a good way of giving thanks – Anwar Oct 29 '12 at 6:12
