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?

Ubuntu :: GTK Apps Ignoring Chosen GTK Theme?

Nov 28, 2009

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.

OpenSUSE :: Some Apps Use Unknown Theme?

Apr 3, 2011

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Theme Suddenly Changes And Apps Crashing?

Sep 16, 2010

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:

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.

OpenSUSE :: QTCurve Theme Doesn't Work For GTK Apps All Of A Sudden

May 13, 2010

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...

Ubuntu :: Theming GTK Root Apps On KDE?

Jun 5, 2010

I use synaptic on KDE and hate that it always stands out. I know that this is because it is written in GTK and runs as a root application, thus it takes its theme from the /root/ folder. How do I go about theming it to match QtCurve and thus match the other GTK applications I use. I have seen some tutorials on how to do this on Gnome but I have not gotten them to work on KDE.

Ubuntu Installation :: Let Non-root Users Install Apps?

Apr 7, 2011

I'm going to set up an Ubuntu computer for my family. They asked for it, I didn't push them. But I know that they don't like passwords.

So my plan is to make an admin account which is in the sudoers group and then make induvidual accounts for the users. But I also want them to be able to install apps.

So I wonder if it is possible to set the computer so that they can use the software center. What is the best method to do this? The apps mustn't be installed system-wide.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change GDM Theme Any More

Mar 29, 2010

I can't change my GDM theme any more nor will I be able to in the next version of Ubuntu! I know why (the gnome developers took the feature out in the re-write of GDM). I have two questions. Why is GDM so bloated that they can't re-write all of the features? It also seems to take a lot of resources (more than the others). My second question. When, if ever, will I be able to customize my gdm theme again?

Ubuntu :: Change Gdm Theme In 10.04?

May 22, 2010

What happened to the gdm configuration screen where I could change the default gdm theme? This seems to have disappeared from ubuntu 10.04, and in my personal opinion, the white/purple default theme of the new gdm is terrible and I would like to change it. Where is the GUI for this in lucid, and why has it disappeared?

EDIT: System -> Administration -> Login Screen only allows me to change automatic logins and other features like that. The GUI I'm referring to isn't there.

Ubuntu :: Change The Login Theme In 10.04?

I remember back with 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, and I think even Ubuntu 9.xx I was able to change the login theme but now I cannot do that anymore with 10.04.

Does anyone know how I can do this?

Before I could have installed all those themes and switched between them, even modify how they look...

Ubuntu :: Can't Change System Theme

Jul 21, 2010

Recently I noticed my system theme changed itself to a grey blocky look that I can only assume is the gnome default. I cannot change it back to anything else, like Ambiance or Dust through the appearance window.

I run Compiz and Emerald for effects and themes. Compiz effects and Emerald's window borders work fine, I have my Emerald theme but the icons, menus and buttons are all this ugly old look and I cannot change it. I have tried reloading the window manager, rebooting, switching Compiz and Emerald off and using Metacity and GTK Window Decorator, but the theme doesn't change. I can't change buttons, menus, colors or icons.

When I open System > Prefs > Appearance, I can choose a theme and oddly enough it changes the theme for the appearance window, but only the appearance window and nothing else.

How can I fix this and get my old theme back?

Ubuntu :: How To Change Desktop Theme

Jun 25, 2011

I am running 11.04 on a Dell Inspiron 1500 series laptop. I updated my computer yesterday, and now my desktop theme is different. In 10.04, changing the theme was easy, just go to appearance settings and choose. For some reason, when I go to appearance and select a theme now, the only options I get are customize and install, neither of which do anything to help me change my theme. The install button takes me to my home directory...presumably to pick a theme file. But I can't find any themes in my home directory.

OpenSUSE :: Appearance Of Graphical Apps Run As Root ?

Feb 6, 2010

When I run graphical applications as root (on KDE4), they inherit my window decorations setting, and use the default widget style. I know that, obviously, I can configure root's widget style to match mine, but I do like the visual distinction. I just don't like it using my window decorations, because I have that nicely configured to match my widget style (and therefore clash with anything else). Is there any way to tell KWin to decorate root windows differently, or even run a separate window manager for root windows?
