    Openbox with rounded GTK-buttons


    Hi,

    I can't figure out how to get my GTK-theme to work correctly.
    I only get the "old-school" look of all the buttons etc. where everything is square and not "rounded".

    This is how it looks: http://i.imgur.com/SyQ8O.png
    And nothing of the newer theme-look like this: http://i.imgur.com/8rGbH.jpg


    Does anyone know how to fix this?
    Starting gnome-settings-daemon doesn't work.


    Running Ubuntu 12.04

    I doubt that GNOME settings will have any affect on OpenBox. What version of OB are you running?

    Code:

             $ openbox --version
    Openbox 3.5.0

             $
    What you need to enrich your experience with OpenBox:

    1. obmenu - Graphical menu editor for openbox
    2. obconf - preferences manager for Openbox window manager (Use this for your preferences)
    3. obapps - GUI tool for configuring application settings in Openbox


    and maybe since you will not have a Desktop manager running:

    1. lxappearance - LXDE GTK+ theme switcher
    2. tint2 - lightweight taskbar
    3. nitrogen - wallpaper browser and changing utility for X


    One other thing to remember, running GTK2 apps in a GTK3 environment and vis·a·versa cause strange effects.
