Make SUDO Windows Match The Rest Of Your Theme

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Have you ever noticed that when using Synaptic package manager or Sudo-ing to root to browse for a file that your root windows don’t match the rest of your theme?

Here’s how to make sudo nautilus match the rest of your gnome theme in two commands!

Open up a terminal then enter each one of these commands separately.

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

hit return, then enter:

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

and you’re done!

You may need to reboot or log out before you see any changes.

Your Sudo theme and icons will now match the rest of your desktop!
