Make synaptic package manager use gtk theme
When I open synaptic (or nautilus as root) the windows resemble the top class “win95″ design.
Some people might prefer that, but I’m not one of them.
It’s pretty easy to make synaptic use the theme you are using.
Edit: Take a look in the comments to “bredan’s 2nd comment”, it’s easier and also includes the icon set.
1. Open nautilus as root
Navigate to /home/username/.themes and copy all of them to /usr/share/themes
(.themes is a hidden folder, press “ctrl+h” to view them)
2. Change the gdm behaviour
In a terminal copy/paste this
sudo gedit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf
Look for [gui] and make sure these lines look like this:
If there is a # before them, delete it.
Now synaptic and other root applications should use the gtk theme you are using on your desktop.
