Setting Bluefish Background Color

Bluefish is a great text editor. I use it for all my web page creation.

Instructions for changing the background color with Linux are here. Reveal hidden files and then edit (or create) a file in the home directory called .gtkrc-2.0 containing
style "EditorStyle" {base[NORMAL]="#DADADA"}
class "GtkTextView" style "EditorStyle"
If you do not like the color I use above, change the hexidecimal value.

Ah, so much nicer.

Sorry, I have long ago switched to Komodo Edit, which is free and includes a nice variety of dark themes.
