Zenburn for Konsole Redux

One of my favorite kde apps is konsole. A while ago I discovered Zenburn which is just about the only sane colorscheme for terminal editing of any sort, and especially in vim. Then I discovered that some enterprising chap had knocked together Zenburn for konsole. Seventh heaven ensued. But lately, as I've been dabbling in kde4 I've been really missing Zenburn in the new version of konsole. So I give you Zenburn for Konsole Redux, shamelessly built on the hard work of others so that you don't have to spend half your evening fiddling about with annoying colorscheme settings just to get it right.

UPDATED: Thanks to Sterling Winter who pointed out in the comments that the link no longer works. So here it is inline, hopefully blogger will react sanely as it so often doesn't with any code examples etc. :)

Hello Craig!

Thanks for keeping the color scheme alive! I've updated my Zenburn for Konsole page to mention your version.

P.S. Your mail was classified as spam by Gmail's spam filter. D.S.

Wow! Thanks for the link. And thanks for the work you put into the original - I wouldn't have had the patience to do it without that! :)

Hello! I ported Zenburn for ctheme:

Your colorscheme is no longer available at that pastebin URL. Content usually expires from the popular pastebins after a few weeks so I recommend posting it here (if you can post a pic, why not text?). Thanks!

Thanks Stirling, I have updated it. It was a bit of a daft decision - of course sticking it inline was probably the best decision all along - but blogger can do weird stuff with quoted command line examples and config files, and doesn't allow one to upload anything other than images.
