Don't let your Widows applications look Ugly on Wine

By Pratik Shivarkar | Labels: , , ,

Does your Windows Applications running on Wine Does not look good as your Linux GTK/QT apps.

What you can do is change the colours the Wine use in user.reg located in ~/.wine directory
e.g.

[Control Panel\\Colors] 1243496323
"ActiveBorder"="212 208 200"
"ActiveTitle"="105 67 27"
"AppWorkSpace"="128 128 128"
"Background"="105 67 27"
"ButtonAlternateFace"="181 181 181"
"ButtonDkShadow"="113 111 100"
"ButtonFace"="236 233 216"
"ButtonHilight"="255 255 255"
"ButtonLight"="241 239 226"
"ButtonShadow"="172 168 153"
"ButtonText"="0 0 0"
"GradientActiveTitle"="237 226 188"
"GradientInactiveTitle"="128 89 51"
"GrayText"="172 168 153"
"Hilight"="105 67 27"
"HilightText"="251 251 238"
"HotTrackingColor"="201 127 85"
"InactiveBorder"="212 208 200"
"InactiveTitle"="105 67 27"
"InactiveTitleText"="236 233 216"
"InfoText"="0 0 0"
"InfoWindow"="255 241 190"
"Menu"="255 255 255"
"MenuBar"="236 233 216"
"MenuHilight"="105 67 27"
"MenuText"="0 0 0"
"Scrollbar"="212 208 200"
"TitleText"="241 239 226"
"Window"="255 255 255"
"WindowFrame"="0 0 0"
"WindowText"="0 0 0"

Or else, You can use msstyles themes from Wine Desktop Integration
However the theme engine is quite slow, but it helps your eyes :)



Enjoy the Looks,

You can simply get many msstyles on sites like.
Crystal XP
SkinBase

Its a good alternative until Wine gets native GTK theme support.
