Replacing the main theme with the dark one in /usr/share/themes is not an ideal solution as each time gnome-themes is updated your theme will revert to default. It's preferable to properly configure your user account to use the dark theme, that way your settings will be preserved between updates. You can do that: Manually: create (open if already present) ...

There's only a single line in that particular .css file because the default theme (Adwaita) comes as a binary: Adwaita is a complex theme, so to keep it maintainable it's written and processed in SASS, the generated CSS is then transformed into a gresource file during gtk build and used at runtime in a non-legible or editable form. Since the code has been ...

There are several things you can do to improve the title bars in GNOME 3. 1. padding The setting for the padding is controlled in this metacity XML file, /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/metacity-1/metacity-theme-3.xml. Open a terminal window $ sudo sed -i "/title_vertical_pad/s/value=\"[0-9]\{1,2\}\"/value=\"0\"/g" \ /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/metacity-1/...

Try xfconf-query like this xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/ThemeName -s "Greybird" Where you can replace Greybird with the name of your theme. With quotes if it's not a single word, so e.g. "Ambiance-XFCE-LXDE-Yellow" must be also in quotes. Now if what you want is to change only some parts of your current theme, not switching to a different theme ...

Yes, something like it currently exists, but it is not the same resize grip in the corner that is used in gtk themes. Something like that would need to be coded into openbox. Add a Handle In your themerc for the theme you are using, you can set window.handle.width to a number of pixels and handle will appear below the window1. The handle includes diagonal ...

This is a window manager theme (Xfce window manager), as you can tell by the presence of only the xfwm4 folder inside the theme zip. You can access it in Settings Manager -> Window Manager -> Style As an alternative install location, if you are the only user in your system, create a .themes (mind the dot) folder inside your home directory and unzip your ...

First of all, unity-tweak-tool is not suited for tweaking elementary OS. Some things might work, but it's completly unsupported as it is written for tweaking the Unity desktop environment - elementary is using Pantheon, a desktop written from scratch. Installing unity-tweak-tool pulled in a package called unity (a metapackage), which in turn pulled in core ...

I got mine fixed by doing: sudo apt-get install --reinstall fonts-cantarell

Have you looked in /usr/share/xfce4/xkb/flags/? I guess changing these files could do the trick.

Simply replace the main theme with the dark one (in a special copy of Adwaita in your home dir): mkdir -p ~/.themes cp -r /usr/share/themes/Adwaita ~/.themes/Darkwaita cd ~/.themes/Darkwaita/gtk-3.0 cp gtk-dark.css gtk.css Then use a tool like gnome-tweak-tool to set Darkwaita as your gtk theme, and the changes should take effect immediately.

Yes, it does have an icon name: inode-fifo. The icon name usually matches the mime type, in this case inode/fifo. And yes, you cannot find it in the official docs because the specification does not list all possible icon names it only aims to (emphasize mine): lay out a standard naming scheme for icon creation, as well as providing a minimal list of must ...

Check what cursors are already installed by going to "Tweaks" app > Appearance > Cursor. If you don't have this app, install it: dnf install gnome-tweak-tool In my case, the only available cursor was "Adwaita". Find more cursors: dnf search cursor-theme Install some of the ones you found: dnf install breeze-cursor-theme oxygen-cursor-themes Now go ...

You can create a .gtkrc-2.0 file inside /root, such as gtk-theme-name="Redmond" gtk-icon-theme-name="hicolor" gtk-font-name="Sans 10" Or, can install an utility like lxappearance and run it with sudo, then you can set the theme graphically.

After the hint from sr, it was quite easy to solve this. I just chose my current gtk3 theme and linked it: $ ln -s /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc .gtkrc-2.0 And then my gtk2 ui's looked nice again.

First a couple of terms which will help you to understand this issue in particular and other things in general WRT a linux GUI: Window Manager (WM) Desktop Environment (DE) Someone should really write a simple, canonical explanation of these in a linux context...anyway, the base windowing system generally used on *nix systems (including linux) is the Xorg (...

To answer the first part of your question: You can't. Luna's theme was built for a specific older version of Gtk. The version of Gtk shipped in Freya is not compatible with this older theme. It will not work.

The qtcurve config file is ~/.config/qtcurve/stylerc. You can copy the contents of your downloaded xxxx.qtcurve file into that file. You can customise many aspetcs of your theme. To understand the functions of keys (activeTabAppearance, appearance, …) you can examine this file. Yet I couldn't find a reference for values (darkinverted, origselected, …). ...

You can run this command, and then click on the window you want to have a dark window title: xprop -f _GTK_THEME_VARIANT 8u -set _GTK_THEME_VARIANT dark If you have some mechanism to find the X window id, you can pass that into xprop -id.

/etc/xdg/user-dirs.defaults (global) and ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs (local) contain the directions to default directories. The xdg-user-dirs-update command may also be of some use to you. Edit: Sorry, I should have been far more specific. In gnome, the file manager Nautilus constantly monitors the XDG configuration files for changes, and is hard-coded ...

The right way is to read the gtk-*.css files and figure it out... Gtk+3 theming allows you to play with colors in various ways: You can either use the hex, rgb or rgba values to represent colors, or you can use the symbolic colors which are defined in the gtk.css file prefixed by a @ symbol. You can also manipulate the colors using alpha, shade, mix ...

You have to open new administrator window, to do this type: gksu pantheon-files in terminal enter your password, then navigate to usr/share/themes/elementary(or other theme)/gtk-3.0 , open apps.css (with scratch) and you have to find : /********* * Panel * ********/ .panel { background-color: alpha (#000, 0.7); color: #fff; font-weight: ...

I do not believe this is an actual Thunderbird issue but an issue with Thunderbird and your windowing/desktop environment. I use Thunderbird 24.4 on Fedora 19 with GNOME 3.8.4 and it works correctly.     Other things to try Plugins I would also suggest disabling all you plugins to confirm that it isn't an issue being caused by your plugins....

Like an idiot, I didn't look at the dependencies for numix-themes on Arch. I didn't think themes needed other packages. To resolve the issue: # apt-get install gtk-engines-murrine and restart the shell (I rebooted).
