I'm new to this thread but have read it.

My Jpilot version 0.11.8 running on KUbuntu 6.0.6 is black on white 
except for a few icons with color.

I'd like to install a color theme but the 
/usr/share/jpilot/jpilotrc.default (and the others) seem very different 
than my ~/.jpilot/jpilot.rc.

How do I install or invoke a color theme?  One of the ones in 
/usr/share/jpilot would be ok to get started.  Man jpilot doesn't 
address this.

I like Jpilot very much but a little color would help a lot.
Especially to make appointment days with entries stand out.
