Where do I find this OpenBox theme?

Two windows to the right in the middle of the page. Where do I find exact same theme for OpenBox?

Hi, I believe that that is one of the standard themes for the window frame and title-bar (coloured bar at the top).

but if what I'm thinking is...

The coloured text within the window?..... May have to be implemented with your shell rc file.

I have coloured text and use zsh (z shell) config over sh and bash.

(if for some reason zsh is not there for use, bash is always ready)

The safd fact is that I don't really know how it's done, coloured text dependant on what it is displaying.

(Context dependant.)

My zshrc file looks like this, with the details to give some points on the entries in this file...
root@GamesBox:~# cat /root/zshrc                                                                                               (11-02 17:52)

you may need to look in to your shell app and see what and where to change these items to make "colored text" display on your shell.

I was asking only about windows, not the shell color scheme, so thanks.

Perhaps you meant, how do i change the window colours?...

right click the desktop, select system, select Openbox configuration manager, choose between 10 themes. #5 is Mikachu.

I'm sure there's more to this, I have seen pics of some amazing OpenBox themes, they must have been customised. If they found out how, you can too.

Cheers and best wishes,...

I use OpenBox as a low resource/high mem DE when recording music, but my Desktop is KDE4.
