Restore terminal background in ubuntu unity [duplicate]

Here how my terminal look, it’s ugly. and I want to restore it to the Purple background with the gray test color. Like the default installation.

enter image description here


It looks like you are using Terminator which is not the default ubuntu terminal application.

You can try and find the default terminal by Searching for it in the Launcher (Can be opened using the Super Key (Usually with a windows logo on).

Or you can run


from your current command line.

If neither of these work then for some reason it has been uninstalled

To install it run

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal

The last option if you are absolutely stuck is do do a right click then preferences to edit the colour scheme to what you want it to be.

If you can boot it from the terminal but not the launcher, let me know so that I can create a desktop icon for you so that you can start it without using a terminal if you don’t know how to do it.
