Inkscape - Permanently Change Default Document Background Color


Just like the title says, does anyone know of a way to PERMANENTLY change the default document background color in Inkscape? I know you can do it on a by-document basis in the "Document Properties" dialog, but I'm looking for a way to make it so that it defaults to a particular color whenever I open up a new document.

Go to your default file default.svg when interface has translated you have to change a file default_XX.svg

eg: default_pt_BR.svg

on the linux the default folder is /usr/share/inkscape/templates/

on windows C:\Program Files (x86)\Inkscape\share\templates\.

open the svg file with a text editor and change the line where is pagecolor="#ffffff"

Remember, doing it as root user!
