If you're using Geany 0.20, the `deprecated` branch might still work.

If you're using Geany 0.21 (latest release), the `master` branch should 

If you're building Geany from Git, all you need is the `.conf` files 
from the `colorschemes` directory.

If you're using Geany 0.21 and the instructions in the README file 
aren't working, let me know.  I don't recommend using 0.20 and the 
`deprecated` branch.  Make sure you don't have old files mixed with new 
ones, so clean out the `~/.config/geany/colorschemes` and 
`~/.config/geany/colorschemes` and try installing the `master` branch 
again once you've got Geany 0.21 installed.
