I want to run separate applications with different themes, the only solution for this that I could find was to use bash -c 'GTK2_RC_FILES=/path/to/gtkrc program'; however, I currently am using a XFCE4 theme which doesn't contain gtkrc file but a themerc file (i.e. it's an xfwm theme).

My question is - is there a environment variable I could modify to select window manager themes on per-application basis (analogous to GTK2_RC_FILES)?

  • "I currently am using a XFCE4 theme which doesn't contain gtkrc file but a themerc file." Please provide specifics! themerc is usually associated with Openbox, which is a window manager! – DK Bose Feb 2 '16 at 16:23
  • Apparently, xfwm4 themes also use themerc. I am using the default themes that come packaged with Linux Mint 17.3 and all the XFCE themes in /usr/share/themes/*/xfwm4/ contain art resources and a themerc file. – strNOcat Feb 2 '16 at 17:17

    Thanks for clarifying. So xfwm4 has files for xfce's window manager and that means you want to run different applications with different window manager themes? If so, you may want to edit your question to make that clear. Anyway, it's an interesting question. – DK Bose Feb 3 '16 at 1:54
