pipewalker supports various themes. Themes are stored as a set of textures in a PNG file. All themes must be 512x448 pixels in size, and comply to the template provided on the project homepage. On Debian systems, the template can be found in /usr/share/doc/pipewalker/examples/scheme.png.

To add a new theme, copy the PNG file to the /usr/share/games/pipewalker data directory. The file name is used as the theme name.
