Changing Appearance style for individual applications

Hey,

Is there a way to use specific appearance style for selected applications in xfce? My problem is that I would like to use the Vertex-Maia-Dark theme, but it makes some of the applications look horrible. For example, I don't want the dark theme to apply some of my browser's input boxes.

Here are some examples what I mean:


On the picture below Vertex-Maia (light) theme is active and as you can see Firefox and Dolphin presents their components as they should, but GVIM has this white random bordering line.

On the picture below Vertex-Maia-Dark theme is active and now Firefox and Dolphin got messed up but GVIM looks alright.

Re: Changing Appearance style for individual applications

Hello and welcome.

These really aren't Xfce issues but rather GTK themeing issues.

Here is a link that discusses how to force a specific per-application GTK theme.

And here is a link that offers options to deal with firefox dark input fields when using a dark field.

As for the gvim white line, isn't that the scrollbar? If you don't want to see it, you could hide it.
