    Gtk- Unable to Locate Theme Engine

    When running steam from terminal I get this warning:
    Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "oxygen-gtk"

    I've read on other forums that I need to down-grade my version of Gtk and give the path to the libs, but Im not sure on how to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Gtk- Unable to Locate Theme Engine

    Do you have the oxygen-gtk2 and/or oxygen-gtk3 packages installed? I think those are what provide the
    oxygen theme engine.

    I would be cautious about downgrading, because multiple versions should coexist peacefully. I know nothing
    about Steam, however.

    EDIT:
    Shared libraries don't "run" the way an executable does. When needed they are loaded into memory and their
    functions are called by programs that are linked to them.

    With reference to GTK, an up-to-date Fedora 18 system probably has 3 versions of the GTK libraries installed:
    gtk, gtk2 and gtk3. Programs call the version they were linked with when they were compiled.

    I would do as sonoran suggests, and make sure the oxygen-gtk packages are installed. (Don't downgrade.)

    Just to add that I have seen messages like this from 32-bit executables running under a 64-bit version of Fedora -- if that is what's happening here,try installing the ".i686" versions of the packages as well:
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install oxygen-gtk.i686 oxygen-gtk2.i686'
