There's the default GTK theme in XFCE called Raleigh. I would like to change the dark blue color (#4b6983) to something different. But if I go to /usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/ and take a look at the gtkrc file all I get to see is this:

This theme is the default theme if no other theme is selected.

No chance to modify anything on that theme. What do I have to do in order to be able to edit this Raleigh theme?

Thanks in advance, joecontra

  • Could you explain why you want to specifically use the Raleigh theme? I think you had an earlier query as well re. gtk3 and Raleigh. I tried finding useful information on Raleigh but couldn't.

Add the following lines to ~/.gtkrc-2.0. Change the hexadecimal color ff0000 to whatever you like.

style "default"
    base[SELECTED]  = "#ff0000"
class "GtkWidget"           style "default"
