Fix ugly root apps in gnome with third party themes.


Many times it happens that we download a gtk them and put it in ~/.themes but the applications run as root such as Synaptic or ‘sudo nautilus’ look ugly. To fix this, make a symbolic link to ~/.themes in the root’s home directory.

$sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root
$sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root

And that’s it. Your root applications will inherit your theme now :)
Happy hacking
