 How to make a theme for the Whisker Menu


This is for Linux Mint 13, 16, and 17 Xfce.
To update whisker menu check out my other tutorial http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1721

First download this image to your /home directory (or use your own image).

background.png

Rename it to background.png  This will be whisker menu background.

Download this image to /home directory, and name it hover.png

hover.png

Find and open .gtkrc-2.0 file in your /home directory and add this:

#Whisker theme
pixmap_path "/home"
    style "darkback"
    {
          engine "pixmap"
            {
                   
                    image
                    {
                            function                = BOX
                            recolorable             = TRUE
                            state                   = PRELIGHT
                            file                    = "hover.png"
                            border                  = { 1, 1, 1, 1 }
                            stretch                 = FALSE
                    }
                    image
                    {
                            function                = BOX
                            recolorable             = TRUE
                            state                   = ACTIVE
                            file                    = "hover.png"
                            border                  = { 1, 1, 1, 1 }
                            stretch                 = FALSE
                    }
            }
       bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "background.png"
            bg[NORMAL] = "#404040"
            bg[ACTIVE] = "#606060"
            bg[PRELIGHT] = "#808080"
            fg[NORMAL] = "#ccc"
            fg[ACTIVE] = "#fff"
            fg[PRELIGHT] = "#fff"
    }
    widget "whiskermenu-window*" style "darkback"

style "darktree"
{

   base[NORMAL] = "#404040"
   base[ACTIVE] = "#606060"
   text[NORMAL] = "#ccc"
   text[ACTIVE] = "#fff"
   
}
widget "whiskermenu-window*TreeView*" style "darktree"

# Save it, then log out and back in to apply
