I have Kubuntu 12.04 (KDE 4.8.4). I also have ubuntu-desktop installed. I am using the Oxygen, which I like very much except for the scrollbars. I have written a scrollbar theme (based on Gmail scrollbar theme for Firefox). How can I make sure that every window uses my scrollbar theme instead of Oxygen's? I found some CSS files in /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-3.0/. Is there something I can edit there?

My scrollbar theme can be found here, if anyone is interested.

I think oxygen-gtk is for rendering gtk apps, so your changes in the specified folder should not affect Qt apps. I would like to know how to change scrollbar color in all applications. – warvariuc Jul 25 '12 at 8:36
Oh. in the desktopthemes folder, there is a folder called "Oxygen", but everything in it are svgz files. Do you know what to do with them? They appear to be image/icon files... – asymptotically Jul 25 '12 at 9:23
