So, I'm trying out Linux Mint on VirtualBox, and I selected the clearlooks theme. But when I opened the driver manager, I got this really ugly windows95-esque theme. How do I change it?
Well, your theme settings are not systemwide but bound to the user.
Running an application as a different user (in your case as root) makes it use the theme settings of that particular user.
It's a non issue anon, you shouldn't be running applications as root.
Hm I'm not sure why it looks like that, it didn't look like that when I've installed it a couple of years ago. Did you install the VirtualBox additions? With that, things should be better.
Just take some time to rice an your Linux can end up looking as beautiful as this.
>tfw linux will never look as advanced as this
