I want to create a dark theme. But I have failed to see how I would change the background color of the menu row and the colors of the scroll bars even though I have tried looking at the relevant Wiki page.

Here is an image indicating what I want to change: enter image description here


The parts of the window you pointed out are rendered by the client, i.e. the application itself. Openbox themes only apply to the window decoration. In order to change the look of your applications you will have to set a GTK theme with a tool like LXAppearance.

  • Thanks! I got it working nicely now after applying the theme file for GTK as well. – bonzaibanzai Jun 18 '14 at 13:59
