Hi Gesa,
	Seems like some bit rot crept in.  Nonetheless, despite the error the color scheme is applied and if you start Multalign Viewer subsequently and go to its Preferences->Appearance preference dialog, you will see the scheme listed in the "Color scheme" menu and you will be able to choose it without error.   I will work on fixing the bit rot.
