Specific settings for libreoffice
Using small scrollbars in libreoffice 3.* cause sheet tabs too small. You can fix scrollbar width for LibreOffice two ways :
- run the script libreoffice-patch.sh. This script will add customs application launchers for libreoffice in .local/share/applications. The following command will be added in the application launcher:
# bash -c "GTK2_RC_FILES=$HOME/.themes/Zen/gtk-2.0/apps/libreoffice.rc application-command"
to uninstall and restore original files (if exist) run:
# ./libreoffice-patch.sh --uninstall
- edit Zen/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and change value of "GtkScrollbar::trough-border" from "2" to "3" for example.

Hi,

Great theme.

In claws-mail, the list of folders and messages are not readable with Zen-Nigra.
You'll find below a fix for claws-mail:

style "claws-treeview" = "murrine-treeview"
{
fg[NORMAL] = @text_color
}
widget_class "*.<GtkCMCTree>.<GtkButton>" style "treeview_header-nigra"
widget_class "*.<GtkCMCList>.<GtkButton>" style "treeview_header-nigra"
widget_class "*Tree*" style "claws-treeview"

You may be able to fix a single widget for an app look here:http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials/GtkThemes and scroll down to 'widget matches'

Thanks.
with gedit it works:
style "Scrollbar"
{
GtkScrollbar::slider-width = 20
}
widget_class "*Gedit*" style "Scrollbar"

but not with "*Libreoffice*" or "*LibreOffice*" ...
I found a way to bypass the problem with this script :
http://urukrama.wordpress.com/2008/07/13/setting-a-custom-gtk-theme-for-specific-applications/
but is more constraining
