    Contrasty tabs for gedit and gnome terminal

    By default, the active and inactive tabs in gnome terminal and gedit aren't very different when one uses the Ambiance theme.

    I posted a workaround a while ago here at the time of 11.10:

    It still works for 12.04. In short, after backing up the file, edit /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css and in the section titled ".notebook tab", replace
    background-image: -gtk-gradient (linear, left top, left bottom,
                                     from (shade (@bg_color, 0.97)),
                                     color-stop (0.80, shade (@bg_color, 0.95)),
                                     to (shade (@bg_color, 0.92)));

    background-color: #222222
    or whatever you like. Alternatively, just tweak the shade values in the existing code.

    Please note that I'm using a laptop (Dell Inspiron 1545) and I don't know whether this will work on desktops or other devices.

    Edit: this works with this Greybird theme (Xfce) installed on 12.04 as well. There, I just change .notebook tab and not .notebook tab:active.

    Shortened urls: See point #11 here. And clicking on them could be risky.
