LXDE windows theme? SOLVED
« on: January 11, 2020, 10:08:48 AM »
I am re-installing LXDE after an update crash.  Although I am trying to get used to KDE again I like to have the familiar LXDE available too - but in my latest instalment the menus and toolbars are all coming up white text on black backgrounds and I want to reverse this and I forget how to do it.

The only base LXDE available now is 2018.01 and that crashes on a full update, so I am only updating what I use on an as-needed basis (e.g. Firefox and Thunderbird need to be updated)

The LXDE Control Center (Configure your LXDE Desktop?) listed under 'More Applications > Configuration' may help.
In there there are sections for controlling look and feel via Openbox (the 'Themes' tab?) and GTK settings.

Thanks kizito, I should have thought of looking there.

It was the GKT theme that I needed.
