WineHumanTheme

Setting the default theme in Wine can make things look truly slick. Observe superm1's post in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=206366

The Human theme linked there seems ideal for integration, but Wine's theme support isn't stable enough to default to it. Another quite effective change is to make wine's colours match the Human theme. This is of course stable and doesn't have any speed penalty. The following colours achieve this quite well (circa edgy):

ubuntucolours.reg (import via regedit or paste colours in ~/.wine/user.reg . Change [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors] into [Control Panel\\Colors] if you paste it)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[ReeceDunn]: I have some patches sent to wine-patches that make it possible to import a human.theme file. As of 12 Feb 2008, only some of those patches have been applied.

[ReeceDunn]: The remaining patches are now in, as of wine 0.9.59 (mentioned as fixed in the 0.9.60 release notes).

The human.theme file that does the same thing as the colour registry file above, but more cleanly, is:

[Theme]
DisplayName="Ubuntu Human"

[Control Panel\Colors]
ActiveBorder=239 235 231
ActiveTitle=210 141 70

Mostly working script to scrape GTK's colors and use them in Wine: http://www.endolith.com/wordpress/2008/08/03/wine-colors/
