* Org Colour Themes
A popular way of customizing Emacs colours is to use the color-theme
package (see [[http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ColorTheme][color-theme emacswiki page]].)
Here is a list of color themes that are aware of Org: You can see
screen shots of these themes [[file:./color-themes-screenshot.org][here]]. Once you have installed a theme it
is easy to tweak its appearance by editing the theme's lisp file.
Some of these themes are available in Worg in the color-themes
directory, whilst others are linked either to the author's site, or to
There is a page with screenshots of each of the themes [[file:color-themes-screenshot.org][here]].

** [[http://github.com/suvayu/.emacs.d/blob/master/lisp/color-theme-dark-emacs.el][color-theme-dark-emacs.el]] (maintained by Suvayu Ali)
Based on theme made by the emacswiki user, ZWZ. The original theme can
be found [[http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/zwz][here]]. Suvayu has also made some org-mode font modifications
outside of the colour theme, which can be obtained [[http://github.com/suvayu/.emacs.d/blob/master/lisp/org-mode-settings.el][here]]. Suvayu's
[[http://github.com/suvayu/.emacs.d/blob/master/init.el][init.el]] gives more information on how to use his customizations.
/NB:/ This theme is not maintained anymore, and won't work with the
trunk version of Emacs 24.1. Emacs 24.1 removes support for the
deprecated 3rd argument form for =face-spec-set=. This breaks the
=color-theme= package in general; so instead of waiting for it to be
fixed, ~dark-emacs~ is now available as an Emacs 24 custom theme. The
latest version can be found [[http://github.com/suvayu/.emacs.d/blob/master/themes/dark-emacs-theme.el][here]].
** [[https://github.com/n3mo/cyberpunk-theme.el][cyberpunk-theme.el]] (Nick Van Horn)
Cyberpunk color theme for the emacs 24+ built-in color theme support
known loosely as deftheme. The theme is mostly a direct port of the
overtone/emacs-live theme of the same name (designed originally for
the color-theme package). Many mode-specific customizations,
particularly with respect to org-mode, have also been added.
** Installing Org Colour Themes.
First make sure that you have the Emacs color-theme package
installed. Copy the lisp files for the themes into a directory in your
Emacs load path.
If you want to be able to easily cycle between different
colour schemes, you need something like the following in your .emacs:
(setq color-theme-is-global t)
(setq my-color-themes (list
(defun my-theme-set-default () ; Set the first row
(setq theme-current my-color-themes)
(funcall (car theme-current)))
(defun my-describe-theme () ; Show the current theme
(message "%s" (car theme-current)))
; Set the next theme (fixed by Chris Webber - tanks)
(defun my-theme-cycle ()
(setq theme-current (cdr theme-current))
(if (null theme-current)
(setq theme-current my-color-themes))
(funcall (car theme-current))
(message "%S" (car theme-current)))
(setq theme-current my-color-themes)
(setq color-theme-is-global nil) ; Initialization
(global-set-key [f4] 'my-theme-cycle)
Now you can cycle through the installed themes using the F4 key.
