Very simply, to use shell scripts like the one in the video, you just download the script, adjust the permissions so it can be executed, then execute it (run it).
Making this a step easier than in the video, you can right-click the ‘view raw‘ link at the bottom of this gist snippet, then select ‘Copy link address‘:
That will copy a link to the file’s raw content, to your system’s clipboard.
To the terminal
You can then open a terminal on your system (here for Mac OSX).on Ubuntu, on Elementary OS, see
Once in your terminal, type wget, then paste the link in so it looks something like so:
If you don’t already have wget installed on your system, no worries. Just enter this:
sudo apt-get install wget
Or on Mac OSX, just use Curl instead:
Pressing enter will begin the process of downloading the file. It should just take a second to complete and you’ll then have a install_gedit_color_schemes.sh file on your system.
Make it executable
Now, you’ll just need to chmod the downloaded file like so:
chmod +x install_gedit_color_schemes.sh
That will give it the permissions necessary to execute it.
Once done, you should then be able to execute the file like so:
Hope that helps, cheers! 🙂
