I have been an extremely happy Download Studio user for many years. In the last week, I have installed it on a new Ubuntu machine using WINE (long story there!!! Thanks to Peter for helping with that).

Now, I can tell many differences in the behavior, some better and some not. One difference I want to adjust is the font and weight of the listings in the RSS Reader and Download queue. In Windows, unread files are a very dark bold, easily spotted in the list. In my current WINE setup, there is nearly no difference, only a minor difference in width.

How can I either change the font used, or increase the weight of bold fonts in that display? If this has been answered, a link to that thread would be welcome.

Hi Cliff,
I think this link might help http://askubuntu.com/questions/219791/improve-gui-appearance-of-wine-applications, looks like it deals with applying a them and adjusting font appearances.

The easiest option in that discussion seems to run winetricks allfonts but the comments indicated that it may not solve all the problems.
Would I need to make sure it is in the correct prefix first, as in WINEARCH=.wine32?

If those options do not work, I'll try installing the XP-based themes and post my results later.
