Changing Deluge Theme on windows 10

Postby Pitchless » Fri May 26, 2017 3:04 pm

I've looked at other threads regarding themes and they're either related to Linux or launch straight into jargon that requires an advanced knowledge of Windows. I'm not a complete newbie, so could someone kindly give me some advice as to whether or not I can change the theme to something easier on the eye? Thanks.

I actually tried to to the same thing. I made a post about it here http://forum.deluge-torrent.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=54608

to modify the interface you need to touch 2 folders

C:\Program Files (x86)\Deluge\etc\gtk-2.0
and
C:\Program Files (x86)\Deluge\share\themes

first thing you need to do is make your own theme
copy one of the themes and rename the folder to something like mytheme

in there you will find a file called gtkrc, open that up with a text file and modify
these 4 lines
# Background, base
gtk_color_scheme = "bg_color:#F5F5F5\nselected_bg_color:#8DCCF0\nbase_color:#FFFFFF"
# Foreground, text
gtk_color_scheme = "fg_color:#3C4343\nselected_fg_color:#1E2222\ntext_color:#3C4343"
# Tooltips
gtk_color_scheme = "tooltip_bg_color:#B7DB67\ntooltip_fg_color:#F5F5F5"
# Other colors
gtk_color_scheme = "theme_color_04:#a9a49c\ntheme_color_26:#292421\ntheme_color_27:#C7C7C7"

the ones with # at the start of the lines are comments, so ignore them

they are pretty self explanatory,
they are the colors of the interface, for example selected_bg_color:#8DCCF0 is when a torrent is selected and becomes blue and the text becomes dark. selected_fg_color:#1E2222
so
selected_bg_color:#8DCCF0 is background
selected_fg_color:#1E2222 is text fg is foreground and usually refers to text.

use an online color picker and what colors you want, if you google a hex color a color picker will appear under the search Image

after you have changed the colors

go into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Deluge\etc\gtk-2.0 folder
and in there you again find a gtkrc folder open that up and change
gtk-theme-name = "DelugeStart"
into
gtk-theme-name = "mytheme"

mytheme is the name of the folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Deluge\share\themes

here I've color coded the code so you can compare it with the default the theme
the default theme on windows should be Image

keep in mind that some of are really dark so they may appear as black

Is this possible on the WebUI?
