Common Theme

Registered by Jon on 2007-09-15

At the moment themes are on a per-screenlet basis. This allows the screenlets to be really configurable, however most of the time users will probably want a consistent look for the screenlets across their desktop, for example users may want a dark theme, or perhaps a light theme to match their gnome gtk theme.

To do this the user must set the theme for each of the screenlets. It would be better for all screenlets to have an option to use the default theme, which can be set in the screenlets manager.

The default themes will make sure all screenlets use the same background colors, font sizes, and font colors. Take the following two screenlets:

The look similar but they still use different backgrounds. If there was a way to install common themes so they used the same backgrounds it would provide a lot more consistent experience for the user. It would also mean screenlets would not have to be provided with themes, instead they simply inherit the default theme.
