change default background color in openbox?


Some applications I use, Psi, Emelfm and linuxdcpp does not have an
option to change the background color for the windows.
They seem to use a default somewhere, which is white, and I would like
to have black backgrounds.

I use gentoo and openbox.
Anyone know how to fix this?

The configuration files are in
... you use a text editor.

Probably the best way is to create a theme.
