desktop theme -- may seem trivial -- matching applications

ok.. this may seem trivial to some..


i have my enlightenment set -nearly- the way i want it... have my ~/.enlightenment/theme (s) set up cool... have my ~/.Eterm/ configs just the way i want them...

but now i want more...

like with Gaim and Galeon (or another browser if you can let me know which one or how to do it)

but i want everything to have the same demeanor.. when i pull up xmms, it looks the way i want, but when i pull up the open files box, it is grey with black text.. and i want everything to be black with green text..
i know this seems trivial.. but i know it can be done....

galeon is all bright and happy, but i want it also to be black/green...

is there any way to do this?.. if there are references that i should be looking up, i'm not afraid to do the work and change the files myself.. but i just dont know where to look...

sorry for being superficial.. but thanks anyhow....

For xmms you will need to get a gtk1 theme and maybe change it with gtk-theme-switch 1 not 2. That also works for mplayer gui unless you build it with gtk2 support. For your applications with gtk2 support just go to freshmeatdotnet and download a metatheme or so. With all the beautiful themes that have been created it should not be hard to color coordinate your desktop with any window manager or application. Unless it uses something like tk or motif......ewwwww!
