I've uploaded new ISOs with grizzler's changes.
Thanks for the headsup!

Do you mean that in Dolphin you see a toolbar and in software manager you see a menu?
Totally different programs, each with its own interface. As Schoelje wrote already: it's by design.
To me it seems that windows opened by the normal user and windows opened as root load a different theme.

This is because root (/root) is a different user, which can have totally different config files.

Code: Select all

sudo -i
ls -la /root

it would be great, at least by default, to have the same theme/configuration. :P

Linux is a multi-user system with root as the system administrator. The idea is that root should not generally run a GUI (and so does not require themes), while users often prefer to have a GUI and so different users can each choose their own themes.

There are not, and IMO should not be, any common config files shared between user accounts and the root account. System-level config files (that do affect all users) can be found in /etc/.

For SolydK it is by design that Dolphin uses the black folder icons for root and blue folder icons for a regular user. This way you can quickly see in Dolphin whether you are running Dolphin as root or as user. This never worked for SolydX's Thunar, though. The rest of the theming should be the same. However, as mentioned above, developers may decide to not follow the default theming and there might be some differences between Gtk2, Gtk3 and Qt applications.

If you want to change root's theming, simply run:

Code: Select all

sudo systemsettings

Sorry to detect this áfter release of the ISO's, but it seems to me that plymouth-manager is not working correctly:

Code: Select all

solydxk@solydxk:~$ debian-plymouth-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/debian-plymouth-manager/main.py", line 6, in <module>
    from dpm import DPM

I see, it's a failed git merge.
Solved it and uploaded it to the repository.
Thanks!
