Made a colorscheme, dropped in /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/.
Trying to change through mousepad ui - nothing pops up.
Trying to change via terminal:
gsettings set org.xfce.mousepad.preferences.view color-scheme 'Zero'
it instantly reverts back to none (no color scheme).
Purging all themes from gtksourceview-3.0/styles/, opening mousepad - but default themes are still there.
Since it ignores default color schemes location: /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/ where does it pick up themes from?
Where to drop my color scheme?
Maybe you want to place them in

Manual actions required for some version changes
As of version
0.5.4, Mousepad is likely to use GtkSourceView 4 (this is decided at compile time by the packager). If this is the case, the custom themes must be copied from ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/ to ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/:
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/ cp ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles/* ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/
[SOLVED] Mousepad Dracula colorscheme / General discussion / Xfce Forums
That does not work. I already tried that.
No custom or just simply renamed theme is showing up nor does it seem to see anything under

I solved this on my own.
I tend to solve things on my own.
Renamed gtksourceview-4.0 to gtksourceview-4. It did the trick.
screenshot in previous post shows
x.xml file has an unexpected description
<_description>Color scheme used in the Kate text editor</_description>
I suggest you download the
dracula.xml theme to and check if that theme works in mousepad ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/
I also changed theme name to
x.xml and it still works on my system: https://imgur.com/x69BDmI.png
If the Dracula theme works on your system, I suggest you compare
dracula.xml and x.xml themes for any differences
