Overwrite the default theme per application

I love using a dark theme on my system, currently I’m running the Adapta theme. But not all applications looks great in dark themes, some need tweaking, this is a quick hack to overwrite the default theme used for a specific application.

In this example I’ll be overwriting the theme for virt-manager.

First we’ll copy the default launcher/desktop file to the local dir, and then we will change that file,

And do this small change, prefix the application Exec command with env GTK_THEME=theme_name
