OpenSUSE :: KDE Applications Not Conforming To Gtk Theme Under Gnome?

May 18, 2011

I'm having a cosmetic problem with KDE applications, like Kile, K3b and Okular, under gnome, they do not conform to the gtk theme set for gnome - which I would like them to do. I'm running 11.4 with gnome 2.32.1 and qt 4.7.1

In 'qt configuration', when I set the GUI style (in the 'Appearance' tab) to 'desktop settings' or 'gtk+' the KDE applications look an unnactractive mix of the gtk theme and the default theme for the applications (which looks like cleanlooks). Some buttons and menus conform to the gtk look and others do not. If I select 'cleanlooks' instead, for instance, the KDE applications have a consistent 'cleanlooks' appearance that has no resemblance to my desktop appearance (e.g. I use a dark window background with white font, and the KDE applications have white window backgrounds with black font, they have different window colors.)

Now, if I have 'desktop theme' selected in 'qt configuration' and I have one of these applications open and I then change my appearance preferences, say to another theme (through 'Control Center > Appearance'), the theme is applied consistently, and the KDE application looks like I would like it to. However, once the application is quit and restarted, the ugly theme mixing recurs, that is the theme selection does not get saved to the KDE applications.

As far as I can tell this is a KDE 4 problem not a qt problem, as other qt applications (like VLC) look fine when set to 'desktop theme' or 'gtk+', while KDE 3 applications (like Quanta plus) seem to completely ignore the 'gui style' settings in 'qt configuration'.

Note this is not specific to 11.4 or gnome 2.32.1, I had the same problem with previous versions of gnome in 11.3, and Fedora 14 when I still used it.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Get Theme Gnome 3 Show Up To Be Usable In Tweak Tool

Jun 23, 2011

I have been running Gnome 3 for a few days now and really like it, but need to tweak it to my liking, basically to an overall darker theme. Something similar to this is what I am shooting for: I have figured out how to do the shell themes (top bar, dock, etc) but I am having problems with the window manager themes (window title bars, window backgrounds, etc). Using the Gnome-Tweak_Tool, I can apply the pre-installed ones, but I am at a loss as to how I add new ones. I have tried adding themes to ~/.themes, and /usr/share/gnome-shell/themes, but I am unable to get them to show up to be usable in the tweak tool. I am comfortable using the command line and/or editing configuration files if that is the only way.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Launched From Gnome Menu Are Not Always Visible

Mar 26, 2011

I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.

Ubuntu :: Awn Makes Gnome Boot Into Gnome-icon-theme

Jan 6, 2011

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.

General :: Change The GTK Theme For Applications Run As Superuser On KDE?

Mar 15, 2011

When I run GTK applications on KDE, they use the QtCurve theme that matches my color and font scheme as configured in the KDE System Settings application.However GTK applications run as superuser use the old default GNOME, regardless of whether I run them with kdesudo, gksudo, or sudo on a terminal. For example, here's gedit run as superuser on top, and under my normal user account on the bottom: Qt applications run with kdesudo display the default Oxygen styling but use my settings when run with sudo on a terminal. Is there any way to configure the stying GTK applications use when run as superuser on KDE?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Theme - Text Blotted Out In OpenOffice Applications

Jan 20, 2011

I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now. I enjoy working with it, but there is one strange problem with Open Office (and Inkscape as well). When I attempt to work with either the word processor or spread sheet (this probably applies to other Open Office applications as well) under the default theme in Ubuntu, inevitably I get text and other elements blotted out with line smudges.

I have included a couple of screen shots, but I am wondering if this is a recurring problem with theme support (Open Office doesn't really use GTK/Gnome, does it?) or if it is some strange affect with the nvidia driver that I installed (version 260-19-06, my card is a GeForce Go 7150M). I have also noticed a slightly different problem, with Inkscape, where the ruler marks that track. The cursor movement don't delete themselves when the cursor moves, so the little triangles build up.

Ubuntu :: Windows List Applet Does Not Follow Icon Theme For Certain Applications?

Mar 30, 2011

I am using Faenza Icons, which is reflected in the icons on the throughout the system except in the windows list applet for certain applications like Firefox and Chrome in the gnome panel. The indicator applet and the menu do show Faenza icons for all the items (including firefox and chrome). I am yet to check for other applications which do not follow the icon theme. I want the windows list to be consistent with the menu and it feels strange that certain applications follow their own icons disregarding the theme I have selected.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Recognize Gnome Shortcuts For Multimedia Keys?

Jan 8, 2011

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.

So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)

Ubuntu :: Gnome Theme Keeps Changing?

Apr 23, 2011

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?

Fedora :: Update To F14 Breaks Gnome Icon Theme / Why Is So?

Nov 3, 2010

After I had upgraded the system to Fedora 14, the icons for pretty much everything except for programs and plain text files in gnome theme (and every other theme that shares them) became inaccessible - they are replaced by a standard icon that appears when no other is found. Other themes, that share no icon with gnome (tango, gnome-colors, etc.), work correctly. I'm using Xfce desktop.

I've deleted icon-theme.cache, but it did nothing.

Any suggestions, what may be causing this?

Fedora :: GNOME Apps Don't Respect XFCE Theme (F15)

May 24, 2011

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.

Fedora :: GTK2 Theme Broken In Gnome Shell / What To Do?

Jun 6, 2011

I am trying to theme my Gnome Shell experience, and I have little complaints for the Shell Theme/GTK3 side of things. However, even though there are GTK2 files included in the packages, my GTK2 apps are theme-wise broken. The colors are not on par and the buttons are not round as the theme should say, as it's still supposed to work since the files are provided.
