bottom pane terminal font colour

Asked by Robert Kirchner on 2012-06-20

How do I change the font or background colours of an embedded terminal in the gedit bottom panel? It's currently showing up as white on very light grey, which is impossible to read. I know how to set the font colour in the gedit editor itself; my question is about the font colour in the bottom panel, which doesn't seem to be affected by the main font colour settings.

Adjust the colours as preferred.

My example.
Although the foreground colour here stated it's black #000000 it was in fact white #FFFFFF, I've made it dark grey #666666 to make the text visible.

Can you help with this problem?
