Further to our post calling for help in creating an Ambiance theme for Gedit in Ubuntu 11.04, developer Shnatsel has packaged Badschemer – a GtkSourceViewer ‘style’ editor – into a .deb installer for easy-as-pie installation in Ubuntu.

Sadly the app is having issues building in Shnatsel’s own PPA so, for now, he has provided working .debs at the links below.

D-d-disclaimer: While we have checked this .deb for malicious intent (and it has none), you all should be aware that .debs can run as root and do whatever they like to your system if they’re built that way, hence, users are advised to install ‘unmarked’ .deb files at their own discretion.

Once installed launch from ‘System > Preferences > Badschemer’.
