It’s be awhile since I used OpenOffice, and no doubt, an update had cleared this variable. I used to have it set at the top of /usr/lib/go-openoffice/program/soffice to “OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=none”. Of course, when I first realized my themes were dark again, I didn’t remember where I had set it, so just used “env OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=none soffice” from the command line. Still dark. Then I looked up where it had to be set, set it, still dark. I see I’m not the only one as this was occurring back in October to someone on Ubuntu 9.10. So can anyone confirm that OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=none is or is not working? And if it’s not, does anyone know the workaround for disabling themes?
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
