[helium-dev] [notabug] bl-exit "classic" theme

Copy /etc/bl-exit to ~/.config and change the theme to "classic", but you don't get the traditional grey box:

### THEME to be used ###################################################
# When the [theme] section is not present or commented out
# or the [theme] section is present and the 'theme' entry is set to
# 'classic', use the 'classic' ButtonBox layout.
[theme]
# set the theme
theme = classic

This is what it looks like on Hydrogen:

EDIT: see below, but it was a config setting, not a bug.

Re: [helium-dev] [notabug] bl-exit "classic" theme

Do you get the traditional look back if the GTK theme is changed to the default used in Hydrogen?

I think the teal background is being set by the theme (Beam?) but I could be wrong.

Which is what is expected...

Try changing the style as well:

Re: [helium-dev] [notabug] bl-exit "classic" theme

The teal wasn't coming from the theme (I'd already tried switching themes) it was this:

I commented out the style section, and now the colour does follow the theme, which is ideal. Thanks! cool
(just removing the rcfile value works too)

Would there be a case for attaching the style information to specific themes, rather than having it set independently?

PS the window decorations which I wanted gone were being suppressed on my Hydrogen desktop by an entry in rc.xml's <applications> section:

    <application name="bl-exit" type="normal">
      <decor>no</decor>
    </application>

Should we add that to the default rc.xml?

^ I liked the window without the decorations for sure, especially with the new blue bar. Dialogs typically come with no or minimal decoration at any rate.

Re: [helium-dev] [notabug] bl-exit "classic" theme

In fact, since the themed exit boxes have no Openbox window decorations anyway, it should be possible to do that for the "classic" theme too, without having to use rc.xml?

I think the bar is really cool, but that blue color did not feel right for me. However copying bl-exit to ~/.config and changing bl-exitrc

[style]
rcfile = grey.rc

make it an easy fix.
