[SOLVED] Lithium - Crunchbang Openbox theme incorrect

When using the "BLOB Themes Manager" and choosing the "Crunchbang" theme, the Openbox menu changes to gray, which is different from the screenshot.

In addition, when we open the Openbox settings, and change the theme, only the window borders changes, the menu do not changes.

What should happen: when changing the Openbox theme, it should be applied to windows and also to menu.

Even logging in again, it doesn't work.

To change theme, you have to open both application obconf (Menu => Preferences => Openbox => WM Preferences) and lxappearance (Menu => Preferences => Appearance).

Re: [SOLVED] Lithium - Crunchbang Openbox theme incorrect

I don't use BL but there are three programs you can use to tweak things with using: [Alt]+[F2] or in the menu itself: obmenu, obconf and lxappearance

Always nice to have the three of them.

Keep in mind the differences between gtk2 and gtk3 applications.
They will look different:

That is obconf. Sorry. Menu -> Preferences -> Openbox -> WM Preferences (same as obconf).

No. I meant the menu theme that appears when I right-click on the desktop. Not the GTK theme.

This is it. Obconf is not working properly.

Re: [SOLVED] Lithium - Crunchbang Openbox theme incorrect

Try this:

sudo apt install --reinstall --no-install-recommends obconf

Then [Alt]+[F2] obconf

I did. But it did not solve the problem.

Another thing: When I choose a theme from the menu "BL Utilities -> BLOB Themes Manager", it works. The theme of the openbox menu is changed successfully. Except when I choose the "Crunchbang" theme. In this case it is gray and not black.

I'm not sure about the BLOB problem - perhaps the screenshot is out-of-date.

In Openbox settings, obconf mainly changes the window container (Preferences > Openbox > WM Preferences). To change the GTK theme for applications, lxappearance must be used (Menu > Preferences > Appearance).

I know it can be confusing, but that is a consequence of using a window manager instead of a fully-integrated Desktop Environment!

Also, with jgmenu in Lithium, the gtk settings must be reloaded: this should happen automatically using BLOB, but BL is in the process of updating to new bl-reload-gtk* script. If you manually change the theme, then run "Reload GTK" from the menu (although there are issues with this process currently, I believe).

Re: [SOLVED] Lithium - Crunchbang Openbox theme incorrect

I understand now. The menu is the "jgmenu" and not the standard openbox menu as in previous versions of Bunsenlabs.

In previous versions, when changing the theme of the openbox, we also changed the theme of the desktop menu. It did not depend on the GTK theme.

But the jgmenu uses the same GTK theme.

Thank you.

And thank you all.
