Gnucash 2.0 is themable, so all the colors you see come from the system
theme.  There is an option to override the theme colors in the register
and use the original register color set (the ones you say are "ugly").

To choose any other color palette for the register in 2.0 you will need
to override the system theme colors.  You can do this by editing the
general ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file, or by editing the gnucash specific
~/.gtkrc-2.0.gnucash file.  There's an example .gtkrc-2.0-gnucash file

IIRC it produces hideous colors, but it will give you an idea of how to
change things.
