You are talking about GUI. On my system LO already uses general (dark) OS DE
theme, as I have said in my opening message. I am talking about the document
colors: the document takes the most of the screen anyway and thus, the colors
in the document influence your eyes much more. What was discussed in the
previous two comments was using a custom theme for document repesentation.
