Slackware :: Some Icons Not Obeying Its Theme / Fix Them?

Dec 8, 2010

I thought I'd try a dark gtk theme (slackware 13.1, xfce). But I find that some of my Faenza icons have updated to their dark counterpart as expected (ie light colored text in the panel clock, menus etc, but some haven't (icons within google chrome, clipman tray icon..).

Some I can replace directly, like changing wicd tray icons with ones from gnome-look or somewhere, but some I don't know how to fiddle with, like the chrome and clipman ones.

The same thing happens whichever dark gtk theme I use.

Why isn't the icon theme being universally followed? Any ideas?

Slackware :: Skype Doesn't Use The XFCE Theme?

Feb 28, 2011

I'm new to Slackware (been on *buntu until now, and use Mint at work). And had to learn some things to make the system do what I want to. That was the aim actually, when I decided to install Slackware 13.1 instead of the Win 7 on my new laptop.And here is one of the two things that I have to do now, to make the system completely the same as I want it to be.I use a black theme - Audacious - on my XFCE on Slackware 13.1. And the skype doesn't use the theme. It stays originally light.

(At work I'm with Mint with LXDE, the same theme. Exactly. And the skype uses it. And looks very good ...)So, I tried the options in the skype options menu - General - Choose style. But no option has the desired effect.I plan to uninstall skype and either install it again from slackbuilds, or just download the static (or the dynamic) one from But, if there is something else I can do - I'd prefer this way.PS: There is something curious also - OpenOffice on the Mint distro doesnt' use the theme. But OpenOffice on the laptop use it, and becomes black ... ?? ... I don't know if this tells something, but - I noticed this.

Slackware :: Slim - Default Theme Vs Black

Jan 26, 2010

I'm trying out slim - the login replacement for gdm/kdm/xdm. I find that when I use the special supplied Slackware theme, I can't see the cycling of the session names as I repeatedly hit F1. But when I use the default theme they show up just fine. Is there some special tweak to /etc/slim.conf that will make the session names visible using the Slackware theme?

Ubuntu :: Current Theme Defaults To Silver Theme For No Reason Randomly On Login

May 4, 2011

For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.

The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.

Fedora :: Mouse Theme / Only Some Symbols Change / Other Stay Standard Theme

Feb 21, 2011

I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?

Debian Multimedia :: Qpdfview Appears With Generic Theme Instead Of Gtk Theme

Jul 5, 2015

Since I updated my system a couple of days ago, qpdfview uses a generic theme instead of the Gtk theme. Apparently by adding

Code: Select allexport QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk.

to /etc/profile all QT5 apps should use the gtk theme but for some reason this doesn't seem to work.

Adding -style=gtk to the launcher options works but I want to change the theme setting for all QT5 apps.

Debian Multimedia :: Dark Theme Vs Light Theme

Aug 4, 2011

I enjoy using vim from lxterminal with the black background, as well as awesome with its dark theme. I configured xfe manually to be darkish, and i use darklooks as a GTK theme to suit it as well. I could say all my desktop looks pretty dark, which my eyes thank me for. I also use redshift.But problems come along when surfing the web. Most web pages (including this one) have very bright styles. They are not the problem themselves, but switching from my windows hurts my eyes since it's a quick change to a much brighter screen.What would you do, either:

1. Use everything with a brighter background and putting the screen brightness a bit lower. (changing the GTK theme to clearlooks, using lxterminal with a white background, etc.)

2. Use some color theme with uzbl so that pages would look much darker. (like when you set manually the text and background colors in Firefox/Iceweasel)

I would myself go with the second one if most pages wouldn't look that bad when modified that way. For example, many pages use non-transparent images with white backgrounds on white pages, so if you change the background to black not only it looks horrible but it too is a mess.

Slackware :: Activate Laptop Integrated Webcam Dell Inspiron 1525?

Oct 31, 2010

I've been using slackware64 13.1 ever since it came out on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I haven't really had any problems with my webcam in that time. However, last time I tried to use skype - I noticed that it couldn't detect it.

In kinfocenter, my webcam is picked up (OmniVision Technologies). The only time I've had a similar problem in the past is when I used the "Compact" option in lilo.conf, and the webcam wouldn't turn on. Just removing the option solved the problem.

Since I don't know what steps caused this to happen, I'm not sure where to start fixing it

Debian :: After Update Theme Not Right?

Jul 20, 2011

I am running Sid Fluxbox using Gnome programs. After updating around a month ago some (though not all) of the programs won't use the theme I have selected. Nautilus still uses it and non Gnome programs do, but others such as gnome terminal do not. So things are not matching up, which is most annoying since I like dark themes and these other programs are defaulting to something light. This problem is only on my netbook and not my desktop, so I am thinking maybe some config file is messed up some where but I am not sure. I have tried changing the theme using lxappearance but this is not helping with the "stuck" programs.
