It's a once and for all operation - not sure why 'sometimes' comes into it. It's meant to be done at the entry point of your program

It depends on what L&F you are using. What L&F did you want it to work for?

Make sure you do it *right at the begining of your app, *before* you create your gui.

Before you call setVisible () to your JFrame (or whatever top level window you have), call UIManager.put () - better to call it right at the start of the program.
