View Full Version : [SOLVED] Use different themes for different applications.

August 13th, 2010, 09:03 PM
Is there any way to use a separate theme for an individual application? I know about customizing themes ie. window borders, controls, icons etc. Here is the thing I love slickness black as my system theme for my panel. I use gnome by the way. When I open some applications though they are just so hard to read. If there is a way to use say the default Ubuntu theme in Firefox and Writer or use a different theme for just the panel. I would really love to know how. If anyone knows please respond. If it is not possible let me know. O.K. thanks.

As far as I know setting the GTK theme is global and can't apply to specific applications. :(

As Vgui the theme is universal and can't mix and match sorry.

Though i guess you could ask someone to make that theme or make it your self if have the know how

You can use Stylish (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2108/) or userChrome.css (http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html) to customize Firefox looks. There are some scripts (http://userstyles.org/styles/10822) already for dark themes.
