Ubuntu :: Apply Cursor Theme In All Gnome And KDE Apps?
May 3, 2010
Running 10.04 very nicely, but I have applied a cursor theme - Comixcursor - which appears fine in my Gnome apps, but does not in my KDE apps, i.e. Amarok, and I get the default cursor. Each time I restart my lappy, I have to go into the KDE System Settings to apply it again.
I installed Gnome 3 on my openSUSE 11.4 install.The cursor goes from white to black like it did in Gnome 2 before I edited etc/sysconfig in Yast.Well I have gotten gnome-tweak-tool and edited sysconfig to use Adwaita and the cursor is still black on firefox white in other areas.
All of a sudden my gnome theme changed and various apps including thunderbird and firefox started crashing. I've traced the first occurrence back to the following errors, starting with a segmentation fault in canberra-gtk-pl in kern.log:
Just upgraded to Fedora 15 this afternoon, and for the most part there weren't any serious issues with it (except for rpmfusion lagging on a F15 yum repo). I installed the XFCE spin, and a lot of GNOME-specific apps don't respect my GTK+ theme at all. Screenshot: [URL]... On the left are two "XFCE" apps (Mousepad and Task Manager), on the right are two GNOME apps (gedit and the NetworkManager "Connection Information" window). Is there an easy way to fix this? I have a custom Murrine theme set, but the problem is still there using the built-in themes such as Glossy too.
i am using opensuse 11.4 and i reinstalled it 4 days before.i have changed the cursor theme,login theme etc.after the reinstall i forgot how to change them.so please tell me how to change cursor theme,login theme,boot splash?
I love the theme that the Netbook remix 10.04 LTS has, but I jumped the gun installed desktop onto my laptop (not a atom based laptop). It works no problem.Is there anyway I can get Netbook remix theme loaded into 10.04 LTS desktop that is default with netbook 10.04 LTS? Searched the gnome sites for theme, background, art, etc, nothing.
I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.
I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.
I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.
I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.
So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.
Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!
I run Debian squeeze 64 bits, minimal install ( I started with Xorg, kdebase and kdm using netinstall ).In KDE settings I can change the mouse cursor theme, and so I changed the default theme ( which is Oxygen Black ) into KDe Classic. But everytime I logout or restart I,m back to the default theme?
I'm running F15 with KDE right now, and I'm using a non-default cursor theme. All KDE/Qt apps are fine, but if I use Firefox, as an example, which is a GTK app, the cursor theme returns to the default as long as it's inside the Firefox window. Back when I was using GNOME, I noticed the same thing when I had my cursor over a Qt app.
I changed my cursors. However the firefox browser is having the black one.gtk is the theme I choosed.gimp is fine, the theme.I found that kspread is not ok, it does not follows the main choosed x11 theme, all other apps does well the selection of the x11 theme that has been selected.
so normaly in order to change root qt/gtk app's theme in KDE, i have to run kdesudo system settings. I think it is possible via linking to have the root theme automaticly sync with my user theme, but i dont know which files to link.
Since this morning, in a normal Gnome session, all of my GTK apps, menus and icons (except, oddly for the Gnome panel) are using the same drab and boring style that they use when they're running as root. Which they're not.No one else uses this computer, and I've made no changes to any GTK-based or affecting settings, except to try to change the GTK controls, with no effect at all. So I cannot understand why this is happening.
Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit installed in laptop hp compaq 6720s, gnome desktop. Personalized inverted theme with cursor whiteglass bigger size. Everything okay in apps except in kde apps I have installed as k3b, ktorrent, when I pass pointer over their windows, the size of cursor is not the bigger but the normal one. Can I do something to fix it?. I used tips in this thread [URL] to make kde apps look like gnome ones.
Ever since openSUSE 11.4, some of applications are themed incorrectly.All my Qt apps look fine, so I figured it might have something to do with GTK. However, my GTK settings indicate that GTK apps also use the Oxygen theme.Why are these apps using this unknown theme?
I have official Compiz Fusion running on my Fedora 13 64-bit. I also installed some custom cursor themes and I'm seeing some strange behaviour. When mouse is on my Desktop the custom cursor theme is replaced by the default one. When I launch Firefox, for example, and move cursor inside Firefox window, then my custom cursor is being shown. Also, if I go to resize some window the custom "resize cursor" is being shown, or if system is processing something then custom hourglass cursor is shown again.
Basically while on Desktop or Gnome panels the custom cursor is being replaced by the default Fedora cursor. This only happens when I choose Compiz as my window manager. With metacity my custom cursor theme is behaving properly. Is it possible to make Compiz Fusion not to mess with my cursor theme? Or maybe it is a Compiz bug?
Ok, this indeed is a bug, but I'm not sure if it's a Gnome or Compiz bug. Here is a fix (a bad one for now) which might save someone time. The credit for this does not belong to me, I got it form this link. So, here it goes:
1. Install gconf-editor by running "yum -y install gconf-editor" 2. Change your windows manager to metacity temporarily 3. Change your cursor theme to the desired custom one 4. Run gconf-editor and go to "desktop->gnome->peripherals->mouse" and remember the value of "cursor theme" option this gconf-editor branch. 5. Create directory with name "default" in "/home/yourUserName/.icons/" directory. 6. Inside newly created "default" directory create file with name "index.theme" with the following content:
Code: [Icon Theme] Name = <anything you want> Comment = <anything you want> Example = <anything you want> Inherits = <THEME NAME YOU FOUND IN STEP 4>
7. After saving the file re-enable Compiz as your window manager and logout/login to your account. The problem with this fix is that you will have to modify "index.theme" file every time you will want to change your icon theme, but it works nevertheless.
so I went to the Ubuntu launchpad and searched for it, and here it is. Someone has already submitted a patch and the bug status has been changed to "fix released."From reading the comments, I've learned the fix is only in Gnome 2.30, and Ubuntu 10.04 uses 2.28 (I think, maybe 2.26) (If it is possible to update to a new version of Gnome, please let me know). Luckily, someone also submitted a patch on the bug report as a temporary fix. Unfortunately, I don't know how to apply the patch. I couldn't find much information regarding it online, and the only stuff I did find applied to using Gnome's git hub.
I have avant-window-navigator in my startup appplications. This apparently causes gnome to use the Gnome icon theme on boot, instead of the Humanity theme I selected in Preferences->Appearance. I just have to go to Preferences-Appearance again to get the Humanity theme back to work (I don't even have to change any settings, just going there is enough.) When I remove awn from my startup applications, this problem doesn't occur.
I want to use my QTCurve theme for GTK apps. This has worked great for several months on opensuse 11.2, and suddenly it broke. I do not know what made it broke, purhaps some kind of system update...The gtk-Qtcurve engines are installed (both 32 and 64 bit). I tried linking the gtkrc file from /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0 towards /etc/gtk-2.0 but that didn't help either. I can change the GTK themes to whatever theme, except to QTCurve...
I have Debian Testing. My theme is Equinox Light and it was working well except for "Passwords and Encrypton keys" app (Version3.02). That doesn't bothered me. But after todays upgrade from gnome-terminal (2.3.2-1) to gnome-terminal3 Equinox theme doesn't work. My themes are installed in /usr/share/themes folder. It doesn't matter if i copy them to my home theme folder. It seems that gnome3 apps doesn't support
Reverting to previous version fixes the problem but i want to have version 3 with nice theme. Ho w can i achieve it?
I am having with CentOS5.4 and Pirut?The update system is telling me I have a Pirut update, but when I go to apply it, the system complains about dependency issues with rhn-setup-gnome. I have searched high and low for the solution to this but haven't found it yet.I have found some hacks, but I am hesitant on messing with the integrity of the system just to complete the update.
When I go to the appearance preferences in Ubuntu 10.04 w/GNOME and try to select a cursor different from the default, nothing happens, the cursor refuses to change. Logging out and in doesn't work. Over the weeks I've played around with this machine a bit, installing and uninstalling various DEs such as Kubuntu and LXDE; I have a feeling something messed up my cursor config while I was changing stuff, but I don't know what or where. Is there any quick way to troubleshoot why the cursor isn't changing?
I use some kde applications in gnome such as k3b, basket notes, kover kreator and amarok. These pull in a large amount of dependencies and need the occasional tweak to get them running smoothly. Although I prefer the gnome desktop would I be any better installing the kde desktop and then running the applications from the gnome menu? Would there be any advantage to this rather than installing them individually into gnome?
moments after I log in to my Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit desktop my theme reverts to the "classic" Ubuntu theme and icons. I can open appearance and change it back, but I have to do this every time I log on. It also changes the theme, but whenever I right click my desktop or open Nautilis, it still looks like the "classic" theme.Is this an already existing problem? is there a fix?
Ever since I upgraded to 10.10, I've been having problems with running KDE apps under my Gnome desktop.Problem one: Apps start in full screen. With Amarok, I was able to set a shortcut key to un-fullscreen the program, which worked. BasKet does not have an option for setting such a keyboard shortcut, and it's pretty much just stuck in fullscreen. Since I'm running Gnome, I do not have an option for un-fullscreening it via the window list bar/right click window menu.
Second problem: My KDE apps seem to use my GTK theme/color settings, but only partially. This results in a situation where I have black text on gray background, which makes it pretty unusable unless I change the GTK theme to something more black-on-white. Before 10.10, KDE apps used to run with what I assume was some sort of a KDE theme, completely different from my GTK theme. I was OK with that, and if possible, would like to remove whatever Gnome-KDE compatibility thing that is causing this.
