    Fire up nano, paste the following code, save as a .term file, and finally... double-click it!

    Can someone code a plugin with SIMBL or something? That would be great! No idea why Apple removed this gem!

    Just wondering, how do you change the background of terminal? Like you have in the picture?

    Cheers

    Backgrounds...

    I guess they were available in tiger, in the actual preferences... Not sure why they were removed in Snow Leopard. At least the underlying code is still intact.

    Perhaps someone could code a plugin to make choosing backgrounds easier?
