That's very interesting to know that it is possible to get the latest
Denemo on a Mac. What version of Denemo do you have working, and where
did it come from?

The color of the keyboard shortcuts is hard wired, unfortunately, and I
see from your picture that it doesn't work well with themes that use a
dark background with light colored lettering. The menu background color
and the color of the labels in the menus is not hard-wired by Denemo
however, so theming should work for them. I've not explored how themes
can be chosen under Gtk though so I can't really go beyond saying it
should work :( Do other Gtk-based applications change appropriately on
that virtual machine?

The appearance of the window without decorations is presumably some bug
in the Gtk version you are compiled or running with... I can be pretty
certain Denemo does not request a window without decorations for the
Command Center.

I tested this (on Debian) and the menu remains visible but can be
dismissed by clicking off the menu (e.g. clicking on the Command Center
itself). Does that not happen with your version?
