    HOWTO: Change colors of wine applications

    Because i've found default colors of wine applications too dark, i tried to found if it's possible to change it to something brighter or better to change colors to match colors of GTK theme. And i succeded . So if you want to change look of your wine then open ~/.wine/user.reg in text editor :
    Code:
    gedit ~/.wine/user.reg
    and replace line
    Code:
    [Control Panel\\Colors] some numbers
    with
    Code:
    [Control Panel\\Colors] 1122940464
    "ActiveBorder"="154 154 154"
    "ActiveTitle"="0 0 0"
    "AppWorkSpace"="154 154 154"
    "Background"="246 246 246"
    "ButtonAlternativeFace"="200 0 0"
    "ButtonDkShadow"="154 154 154"
    "ButtonFace"="246 246 246"
    "ButtonHilight"="238 238 238"
    "ButtonLight"="246 246 246"
    "ButtonShadow"="238 238 238"
    "ButtonText"="0 0 0"
    "GradientActiveTitle"="213 166 55"
    "GradientInactiveTitle"="213 166 55"
    "GrayText"="128 128 128"
    "Hilight"="100 132 164"
    "HilightText"="255 255 255"
    "InactiveBorder"="246 246 246"
    "InactiveTitle"="193 197 171"
    "InactiveTitleText"="255 255 255"
    "InfoText"="0 0 0"
    "InfoWindow"="246 246 246"
    "Menu"="246 246 246"
    "MenuBar"="0 0 0"
    "MenuHilight"="100 132 164"
    "MenuText"="0 0 0"
    "Scrollbar"="246 246 246"
    "TitleText"="255 255 255"

    These colors match Industrial theme, but you can change them as you wish to make them match your theme colours. Values are in "R G B" format.
    And sorry for my english
    Now if you start your windows application it should look something like this:

    Re: HOWTO: Change colors of wine applications

    My god, jesus bloody christ (forgive my blasphemy... but....) I've been searching for a way to do this for ages.

    Finally, my Wine windows no longer look like default Win98 colour schemes (ugly!) and now look like my linux.

    Brilliant.

    Seamless integration with wine.

    Re: HOWTO: Change colors of wine applications

    okey dokey... figured this out in Crossover Office, plus rethemed a bit. Here's mine, based off of Whiteplate theme:

    ~/.cxoffice/dotwine/user.reg

    Code:
    [Control Panel\\Colors] 1105779303
    "ActiveBorder"="240 240 240"
    "ActiveTitle"="240 240 240"
    "AppWorkSpace"="198 198 191"
    "Background"="93 77 52"
    "ButtonAlternativeFace"="216 216 216"
    "ButtonDkShadow"="85 85 82"
    "ButtonFace"="240 240 240"
    "ButtonHilight"="255 255 255"
    "ButtonLight"="255 255 255"
    "ButtonShadow"="198 198 191"
    "ButtonText"="0 0 0"
    "GradientActiveTitle"="240 240 240"
    "GradientInactiveTitle"="240 240 240"
    "GrayText"="198 198 191"
    "Hilight"="119 153 221"
    "HilightText"="0 0 0"
    "InactiveBorder"="240 240 240"
    "InactiveTitle"="240 240 240"
    "InactiveTitleText"="255 255 255"
    "InfoText"="0 0 0"
    "InfoWindow"="216 216 216"
    "Menu"="240 240 240"
    "MenuBar"="0 0 0"
    "MenuHilight"="179 145 105"
    "MenuText"="0 0 0"
    "Scrollbar"="240 240 240"
    "TitleText"="255 255 255"
    "Window"="255 255 255"
    "WindowFrame"="0 0 0"
    "WindowText"="0 0 0"
    If anyone has the time, see if you can figure out how to get fonts working from this page: http://justlinux.com/forum/showthread.php?t=141123

    i can't quite figure out what he's trying to do...

    Here are the important bits, for making your own (it's in simple R G B):

    Everything that says 240, that's the base color of your theme... the bcakground behind everything.

    The "Hilight" is the color of mouse-overs... right now, it's a nice light blue. Be careful with "HilightText", it's actually the color of selected entries when opening and closing a file. "InfoWindow" is for tooltips. Those are all i've messed with, and, i must say, it looks pretty darn swell! Pics attached... someone please figure out somethign with the fonts :/

    Talking Re: HOWTO: Change colors of wine applications

    Maybe a litle late (2 years since last post ) but why not use the Windows XP Royale Theme download from here : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop...or-WinXP.shtml
    Fire UP the exe inside the archive with Wine and after installation go to your winecfg Desktop tab and select the theme. Work like a charm

    many months too late, but this page has good google rating

    here are wine xp settings, which i lifted from http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine...st/010161.html

    These are the colors from a Windows XP Professional installation, they do an
    amazing job of making the WINE user experience quite a bit more enjoyable
    without any changes to the source!
