I am currently developing an application for Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10 systems. My application is completely monochromatic except for the spinbuttons as seen in the screenshot below.

enter image description here

This issue is only persistent in 12.04 since in 12.10 the spinbuttons by default are monochromatic. How do I convert this into something like below,

enter image description here

Please state how to ensure this is local to my application alone since I do not want to be messing around with system files, users wont like that.

How do this I solve this?
