--- Comment #6 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
LibreOffice already will pick up the colors from OS DE theme. It just has to be
forced to do so.

On Windows for example, forcing it to do so is done from the Tools -> Options
-> Accessibility panel where the "Options for High Contrast Appearance" are

Select the "Use automatic font color for screen display", and "Automatically
detect high contrast mode of operating systems" checkboxes.

For now, this is not a 100% solution as our fixed "high contrast" icons is an
incomplete Galaxy/Elementary derivative only suitable for dark HC themes.

Believe tweaking this mode to allow selection of other icons sets (i.e. Sifr
Light, or Sifr Dark) but also to apply without requiring the OS DE theme signal
for HC should should provide a full DE theme driven GUI within LO _without_
changing the application colors from default "automatic" settings.
