    GTK Theme Error


    Well, I don't think it's an error. I haven't been able to utilise everything I should be able to from GTK2.0 themes. I'm sure there is some sort of package I need to download, and I have managed to get it working before, but I can't remember the name of the package.

    Thanks in advance for all who help.

    Can you describe your problem in detail. If you have downloaded themes and they seem not to work alright, you maybe missing GTK engines required by those themes.

    probably best way is to give a screen shot:

    What it should be: http://gnome-look.org/CONTENT/content-pre1/47919-1.jpg
    What I have: http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r...inux/GTKEg.png

    Take particular notice at the top and bottom panels and their related graphics. Both images have the same GTK theme set.

    It seems like you are missing the GTK engine required by the theme. Check the page where you downloaded the theme from, it may tell you which gtk engine you need to install.

    Thanks, for that. I've downloaded every GTK package in the repository (which wasn't too much anyway), and so now most of the GTK themes should work in the future :P.
