Theme support is currently disabled in Audacity.
There is likely to be a new and much improved method for customising the visual theme in future versions of Audacity.
The old method of customising the theme may be enabled if you build Audacity from the source code and enable Experimental Theme Support in "/src/Experimental.h", but it is incomplete and probably not worth the effort being that it is due to be replaced in future versions of Audacity.

To be clear, It's disabled in that you can't create the ImageCache.png or individual PNG's for each component.

But current Audacity can load existing PNG theme files by adding:
Code: Select all
[Theme]
LoadAtStart=1

to audacity.cfg.

There is a "Vista" theme at http://jcsu.jesus.cam.ac.uk/~hdc21/design/audacity/ that might be something you could work with or modify.

But as Steve suggested, some method of easily modifying Audacity themes will be coming back within the next few Audacity releases.

I know, that I can't use the new version for splitting of the ImageCache.png
to individual pictures, I wanted to do, I could use version 1.3.8.
But how to edit colors?
I tried to change the colors directly in the ImageCache.png.
I found this:
----------------------------------------
first row
1 blank space in the audio track
2 audio tracks background (unselected area)
3 audio tracks background (selected area)
4 wav curve (amplitude)
5 ?
6 ?
7 ?
8 filling of wav curve
...
----------------------------------------
second row
14 frame around the current track
15 frame around the current track
16 frame around the current track

Here is my attempt:
