I am a HUGE fan of dark theme, and using a computer without it just feels funny. I enjoy xfce-dusk theme, but I found that libreoffice is ruined with any sort of dark theme in GTK environments (poop). So is there a way to launch libreoffice (or any other app that conflicts for that matter) and have it just use some sort of light theme? Or one thing I noticed is the Xubuntu theme doesn't have these conflicts. Anyone know how to install that? I think that's another working solution.

I remembered doing that in the past on GNOME, and it sure does work on GNOME, but not XFCE

My libreoffice dark theme had dark Text on a Dark background. Some of this depends on the themes installed. Now that I'm using Adwaita-dark, it is fine.

Also a through Arch wiki on gtk theming: Arch linux wiki gtk

The code to effect a gtk theme change changed from gtk2 to gtk3.
