Color schemes

With the Import Color Scheme and Export Color Scheme buttons you can load and save a Color Scheme profile. This allows Krusader to use Total Commander©, Midnight Commander, foo-commander or your own custom color profile. The Color Schemes are stored in $KDEDIR/share/apps/krusader, the foo.color is a binary file that holds the color scheme.

Tip

Midnight Commander and Total Commander© Color scheme files are provided. Please upload your favorite Color schemes so that they become available for the Krusader community. Thanks!
