Activating theme

You have to manually modify the ConEmu config file.

  1. Open ConEmu.xml file. It is in the installation directory of ConEmu or the user directory like C:\Users\UserName.

  2. Find the palette definition. It is a xml tag starts with the following code:

    <key name="Palette1" modified="2016-02-21 19:15:02" build="160218">
    <value name="Name" type="string" data="ThemeName"/>
    <value name="ExtendColors" type="hex" data="00"/>
    <value name="ColorTable00" type="dword" data="00000000"/>
    <value name="ColorTable01" type="dword" data="00800000"/>
  3. If you don't find the xml above, you may not have any custom color scheme. So open ConEmu Settings dialog (Win+Alt+P), and go to Features -> Colors -> Schemes, enter a name and click Save, then the palette definition will be generated. Close ConEmu.

  4. Replace the color table in the palette tag with the dracula color table (see conemu/dracula.xml, there are 32 color values), save the ConEmu.xml.

  5. Reopen ConEmu.

  6. Notice that ConEmu's color scheme may not change in the later version, because the <Current color scheme> is used by ConEmu instead of the dracula, you need to go to Features -> Colors -> Schemes and switch to dracula.
