sorry to reply to my own post, but i found a quick way to give yourself a
'preview' of what ardour looks like with the system settings. just add an
empty 'ardour2_ui_dark.rc' file into the '.ardour2' directory in your home
directory. looks quite interesting with some gtk engines and themes, even
though there are quite a few graphical glitches. it would be nice for the
custom controls (faders etc) to play nice with system colours, but it is an
interesting start. one gotcha is to remember that the 'record buttons' etc
won't flash when armed, as that is done with custom gtk settings.

it would be nice for there to be a 'minimalistic' ardour2_ui file that just
contained the necessities such as flashing record button and left the rest
to the system as a third option (after dark and light themes).

it does use gtk, but the ardour2_ui files explicitly state font sizes etc for everything. pretty much everything to do with your system settings seem to be ignored and everything is set manually. i've been playing around and i might try to see if i can get it to use system settings for the ui, but i imagine it will look pretty nasty :)

Are you sure about that? It seems like since it uses GTK (doesn't it?) that it should be easy to change...Maybe I'll try it today. Unless someone already did?

i very much doubt it. its not easy to change. there is no way to changeit from within the program, for a start.the fonts are all defined in ardour2_ui.rc, which is generated at buildtime. that file is installed at the system level, but you can also have
a copy of it in ~/.ardour2.at some point (soon!) we need to rationalize the font use down to thesame 4 sizes we use on OS X. on X11 right now, there are more than adozen different font definitions. its a mess.
