With the help of (answers to) questions like Make gedit embedded terminal colours the same as the default terminal and How can I change the color of the text in a terminal embedded in GEdit? my gedit terminal now respects the theme colors (actually: that isn't true. The terminal seems to use Cobalt no matter what color scheme I set in the preferences, but at least I can read it.)

The "Shell Output" tab, however, is still all red letters on a white background and I don't see where that is being set. How do I get gedit's "Shell Output" tab to respect the theme colors?

Using gedit - Version 3.8.3

    Actually it is black color for stdout-type output and red for stderr. What bothers me is that even if the program tries to produce colors (like now gcc does), they are ignored by the gedit output. – alfC Mar 20 '14 at 7:21
