How to make DraftSight look native on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit

Here is a workaround to make DraftSight to use your desktop theme on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit.
  • Create a new file named .gtkrc-2.0 inside your home folder
  • Add the following line and save it.
  • Edit your .profile file. It is inside your home folder and it's hidden so you have to hit Ctrl+H in order to make it visible.
  • Add the following line at the end of this file and save it.
export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"
  • Install gtk2-engines-murrine:i386
  • Logout and then Login back in order to apply the changes
Now DraftSight will use the default desktop theme on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit.
