I give up!  After looking at most of the links in this thread, I can not 
get the Lazarus IDE to use anything other than the default theme ('black 
on white - with language highlighting).  I would really like to use a 
dark theme (white on black or gray - again with language highlighting).

I normally start lazarus from a .desktop file, but even dropping back to 
the command line (with --pcp= ... ) nothing I have done changes the theme.

Could someone give me a command line that I could adapt to produce a 
dark theme?
