Found this great page and thought of sharing this:

http://www.sharms.org/blog/2012/08/using-iterm-2-themes-with-gnome-terminal/

When using this, you will need to install :

https://github.com/caseyhoward/nokogiri-plist

and when you install this, you will find that the permissions for the files are not appropriately set, so go to your ruby gems directory or the installation directory for nokogiri-plist and change the permissions.

Earlier I had posted this. So, if you want to try all of these schemes, then you need not have to copy paste the schemes from the web page, you can try the below script.

gnome-terminal color schemes.

Colours
Colours (Photo credit: CherrySoda!)

I was looking for a way to set the terminal colors for gnome. There is a GUI way to change the same by going to the Preferences->Colors. And then you can change the colors that you see in the color pallete in the bottom of the dialog box.

But I was looking at doing it faster and better, and finally I found this page.

http://www.sharms.org/blog/2012/08/gnome-terminal-color-schemes/

Quite interesting and good.
