how to set background theme in odoo.


You add css file to your module

<!-- Append css to assets_backend [Use assets_frontend if website] -->
<template id="assets_backend" name="my custom theme" inherit_id="web.assets_backend">    
     <xpath expr="." position="inside">
           <link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/your.css"/> 

Open your css and add styles. That will override the existing css of odoo.

Hint: Inspect Element ( ctrl+shift+i ), edit css , copy and paste to your css file.
.o_sub_menu {
    background-color: red;


You can change themes in odoo by installing Website Theme Install application using link https://www.odoo.com/apps. and search for themes in the search box. so you get one application named Website Theme Install and install it. 

So By your choice you can choose any theme from that application.
