Getting rid of ugly windows in Openbox – part 3 (Qt)

It’s been a while, sorry about that, I’ve been really busy lately. Anyway, let’s end turning our Openbox beautiful ^^

So, I’ve done Gtk 3.0 and Gtk 2.0. Now onto Qt – KDE stuff ;)

I’m not sure if I have this because I use some KDE apps (like Okular for example) or if it was already in my system, but anyway I used Qt Configuration for this.

Anyway, the important part – to start Qt Configuration – just go to the terminal or click Alt-F2 and type qtconfig – and that’s it, you’re done, now have fun wit stuff ^^

I made my KDE apps look like my Gnome ones selecting Gtk+ on the GUI style, but you have several options to customize everything as you want.

 


Getting rid of ugly windows in Openbox – part 2 (Gtk 2.0)

In order to edit the look of the majority of things I use which are based in Gtk 2.0, I use a program called LXAppearance.

It’s available on the community repos so you don’t need to go look for it in aur.

Just type

sudo pacman -S lxappearance

in the terminal and you’re done.

This program can manage themes, colours, icons, mouse cursor, fonts and some other extras and it’s really really useful.

That’s it for now – once I find out how to edit Qt stuff I’ll be back on this :)


Getting rid of ugly windows in Openbox – part 1 (Gtk 3.0)

My nautilus in Openbox

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.
