    How to change the color of the LXDE main menu?

    I have installed a dark theme and was wondering how the main menu background and letter colors can be changed, and also those of the menu which appears when you left click an item. I have been looking in other threads and in the Lubuntu official documentation but cannot find a way to do it. Also, is there any dark monocrome icon set that could be used for this?

    icons are in usr/share/icons

    I recall having a look a while ago for someone and did not find the main menu icon there. I think I found it in the Quantal set, but I cannot retreive my post again. You'd need to download the files and have a look for yourself, then maybe adjust the colors to your liking.

    Thanks bapouma.

    What about customising th colors of the main menu, as the background and entries?

    I also found out there seems to be a bug in 14.04 which doesn't allow color customisation yet: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...n/+bug/1316384

    Looks like the package is in Trusty already, in universe http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/lxsession

    True!

    Just delete the entry iGtk/ColorScheme= from ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/desktop.conf, and then your settings will be saved
