^ No, it works perfectly -- it just highlights the selection box with a light-blue outline.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Just what I've been looking for -something easy for the eyes for overnight nerding.

Hoowever I can't get it installed sad I also tried twoion's .deb package. The IceDarker icon set was no problem. Dunno what I'm doing wrong now... hints?

*scuse my n00bness tongue

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Thanks HoaS, but that worked. IcyBlack doesn't show up in lxappearance.

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Just worked for me in a fresh #! install:
2014_12_06_163709_1366x768_scrot.jpg
Did you restart lxappearance?

EDIT: You have downloaded the openbox theme -- you want the IcyDark icons from here:
http://capn-damo.deviantart.com/art/Icy … -487138605
Click on the "Download" button & unzip it.

EDIT AGAIN: oops, just read your question again -- you already have the icons, but you want the openbox theme, right?
You need to use the openbox "GUI config tool" -- Openbox main menu → Settings → Openbox → GUI config tool

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Icon set is acually damo's IcyDarker, https://copy.com/tLGE6h9CC0pXZt3M smile

Yap... I'm not familiar with theming so I followed the instructions here... restarted lxappearance multiple times, rebooted the laptop twice...

Openbox-3 is the theme folder, here's top of the themerc:

pgrino69 ~ $ cat /usr/share/themes/openbox-3/themerc
!!------------------------------------------------------------------------
!! OpenBox Theme : "IcyBlack"  by damo, September 2014
!!                  http://capn-damo.deviantart.com
!!                  <damo.linux@gmail.co>
!! Using CathexiS by http://samirkahvedzic.deviantart.com
!! as a starting point

!!------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried changing the folder name to IcyBlack which helped nothing. Also copied the whole shebang to my .themes which made no difference either.

I just noticed I have also IcyDark in /usr/share/themes, that must be what twoion's .deb created.

EDIT

Yeah, HoaS, that's my problem - it's just not there... tongue

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

You have copied the contents of the theme directory

/usr/share/themes/openbox-3/

You need to have

/usr/share/themes/IcyBlack/openbox-3

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

HoaS... lxappearance is the GUI config tool...

EDIT

Correction: when I start lxappearance from shell my system opens the GUI config tool smile

Naturally it won't show up in lxappearance, because its the Openbox theme, not the gtk.  Use obconf (Settings->Openbox->GUI Config Tool) (EDIT as @HoaS already told you  wink )

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

@Peregrino69 -- no, it isn't...
Open a terminal & type:

obconf

Re: IcyBlack gtk and Openbox Theme

Well there we go big_smile

Now this is a bit weird one. menu.xml says:

		<item label="GUI Config Tool">
			<action name="Execute">
				<command>
					obconf
				</command>
			</action>
		</item>

When I go and click it, it opens lxappearance. Always has big_smile

EDIT

Ummmmm.... I just changed the menu so it's now full path /usr/bin/obconf. Still launching lxappearance. Started looking for another menu.xml file... and found out that the one in my .config/openbox actually has a duplicate entry. lxappearance comes up right under "Edit default applications" - but it doesn't actually show in the menu at all. Nope, I did not put it there - I've not even heard of lxappearance before read this thread...

Good thing I think troubleshooting's fun big_smile

Removed the duplicate, now have only one of each and things seem to work smile

Yup, weird. What do you get from

ls -l /usr/bin/obconf

Don't forget that you can set a gtk2 theme for a particular application, as described here. (I'll have to investigate how to do it for gtk3)

[Thanks for the kudos smile  :8 ]

Simply great stuff (both the gtk & Openbox theme)! Works perfectly with all my programs. The only one I have a tiny issue with is LibreOffice but that's because they do some weird stuff; when you go "dark" certain things change automatically. So I'll keep my old theme for LibreOffice alone.

If you do find a hack to run a gtk3 app with a specific theme I hope you share that here. I've been looking but haven't found a way as yet.
