Getting rid of ugly windows in Openbox – part 1 (Gtk 3.0)
If you’ve just installed Openbox you’ll notice the ugly windows (Windows 95 like -.-) and such.
Well there’s a *simple* solution for that (well a set of them).
For starters, I use nautilus as a file manager and it’s based on Gtk 3.0. There isn’t really anything out there to edit Gtk 3.0 settings (at least that I know of) so I’ve searched and finally found a solution.
1) Install gnome themes standard and gnome themes extras:
sudo pacman -S gnome-themes-standard gnome-themes-extras
2) If you don’t have it already, install librsvg:
sudo pacman -S librsvg
3) Now, to do a symlink… This will basically “copy” the gtk-3.0 folder onto the .config folder… It’s a bit hard to explain but anyway… type this in the terminal:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/ .config/
4) Now open the settings.ini file in your text editor. I use kate so I did this:
sudo kate /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
5) Let’s edit the settings so they’ll be just like we want them. Gtk 3.0 is already using the Adwaita theme by now so all we need to do now (if we want) is changing the icons theme (if you don’t like the default Gnome one).
I really like Faenza icons theme, and I’d already installed it so I’ll just edit the file. Add the line
gtk-fallback-icon-theme = icon theme name here
and you’re all set (with Gtk 3.0 anyway)
Part 2 will probably be about Gtk 2.0 or Qt3 or Qt4 (basically Gnome 2 apps or KDE 3/4 apps).
Stay tuned ^^
