Pimp My Calibre

Is there a way to customize the skin.
Nothing fancy.
Change colours. Alter button sizes. Customize the "calibre - ||Tablet Library||" heading.
Stuff like that.

icon sizes in preferences

colors and title bar - run from source

icons themselves read the customizing calibre section of the user manual

THANKS.
That was easy.
Since, however, I am at best a yellow belt at all this - aka a novice - the one thing I couldn't do was change the colour and add my son's name to the top line on the far right. Could you walk me through that. If possible.
Much appreciated.

for that you have to run from from source and modify the code, if you aren't familiar with python/Qt it will be too much work.

That's what I was worried you'd say.
Thank you nonetheless.
I appreciate you taking the time to answer my query.
