yes is not the good way ,do not modify the original code.

it is the same principle,work with inheritance.

create a new module . in this module create your file.css in folder static/src/css .


and in __openerp__.py add this line :

'css' : ["static/src/css/custom_skin.css", ],

Example if you want change color of menu to red :

@charset "utf-8";
.openerp .oe_menu > li > a {
    color: red;    

I recommend you use Firebug to know the class css.

I created a openerp 7 module which allows you to choose templates : www.martinienolinga.com/en/plugin-des-templates-sous-openerp

I tried this method but when I inspect the generated source code I found a link to css files from https://apps.openerp.com/mail/static/src/css/mail.css . How can we disable this?
