View Full Version : What causes this? (GTK+ theme is only half-applied)

16th May 2007, 10:14 PM
For some reason when using certain themes they're only half-applied... For example the Foresight theme I grabbed of gnome-look is really nice but in Yumex, Pirut and gdmsetup it looks horrible, as if there was no theme at all (see attachment). What lines do I have to add to the gtkrc to get rid of this? (let me know if you want me to attach it)

Yumex and some other apps like a lot of the Java ones don't respect those settings so there isn't really much you can do about it, I did file a bug against Yumex for this though.

BTW I don't blame those programs for not wanting to look like that, that theme is horrible. :p

I'm just playing but if you attach the theme I'll play around with it and see if there's any improvement I can make to it. ;)

Sure - It's just a copy of what I downloaded here:

Alright cool, I'll grab it in a few.

BTW - I forgot to ask are you making this theme available system wide or are you just installing it for your account?

Unless it's in /usr/share/themes, these programs might not have access to it since they all run as root, right?

Aha! That makes sense, I installed it locally only and pirut, gdmsetup and yumex are all root-enabled apps...
Edit: Perfect, that solved it!

I knew something that Firewing1 didn't.

Sure it's silly and not nearly as useful as Firewing's level of knowledge but still... :D
