How to Display Inverse Colors in Ubuntu


The open source Ubuntu operating system includes numerous accessibility features designed to assist visually impaired users in viewing the display, including the ability to display inverse colors across the desktop or within specific windows. Once you enable the inverse colors plug-in for Ubuntu, you can switch your display to the negative color spectrum with a simple keyboard shortcut.

  • Click "Applications" and select "Accessories," then "Terminal."

  • Type "sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager" and then press "Enter." Type your Ubuntu password to authorize installation of the Compiz Settings Manager.

  • Click "Preferences" and select "CompizConfig Settings Manager."

  • Type "Negative" into the "Filter" search box.

  • Click the check box beside "Negative" to enable the plug-in and then click "Negative" to configure the keyboard shortcut.

  • Click the "Toggle Window Negative" or "Toggle Screen Negative" button to customize the keyboard shortcut. By default, pressing "Super" (also known as the Windows key) and "N" together will invert the colors of the current window and pressing "Super" and "M" will invert the colors of the entire screen.

  • Press the configured keyboard shortcut keys to invert the colors of the window or the screen.
