In terminal click on the 'Edit' menu then 'Profile Preferences'. It will pop up the 'Editing Profile' Window. to reset the color make sure that you have selected the check box named 'Use colors from system theme' in the 'Colors' tab.How to reset the terminal properties and preferences?

Try gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/gnome-terminal

If you want to do a complete reset of the Gnome Terminal settings, you can remove the ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal directory which contains them. I would close all terminal windows on your desktop. Then switch away from the GUI with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login on the console.

You should probably backup the directory first, with something like:

cp -a ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal ~/terminal-settings.bak

Then remove it:

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal

Now, you can switch back to the GUI with Alt+F7 or Alt+F8 and launch the terminal. It should be reset to system default settings.

When you are in Terminal, go to Edit > Profile preferences, or press Alt+E-O to open the Editing Profile dialog. After make sure to select everything as below images.

Also, make sure that the value of PS1 in ~/.bashrc file is:

PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
