I think it is a problem with GTK theme configurations, but I can not figure out what it is. Then starting GNOME, or any other program that is based on GTK, including gdm, the text inside buttons is cutoff on the bottom and left side. So for instance in gdm when selecting the desktop environment I want to run I would only see the top parts of few letters of the names. This happens in gnome and other GTK apps. I run MEPIS 2004.
What can this be?
