Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1004832
Version 3.4 (was: grey BG instead of selected BG)
Last modified: 2015-04-21 14:46:41 EDT
Description of problem:
With the file manager (nautilus) handling the desktop on (org.gnome.desktop.background.show-desktop-icons is enabled) and this theme is selected for the Gtk+ theme, then the background is grey. If the file manager is NOT handling the desktop, then the selected background is correctly displayed.
Note: This is NOT the only theme with this problem. So far as I cn tell, only the Adwaita, Zukitwo, and Zukiwi gtk3 themes do not have the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19, gnome 3
Steps to Reproduce:
correct background displayed only if file manager not handling the desktop.
correct background displayed
Apparently the rules changed. The Adwaita theme was updated some time ago so it does not have the problem:
The themes probably needed to be updated because there was some change on the
gtk+ side. What makes me believe so are these changes which were made to
Adwaita (months before nautilus desktop changed):
I would have thought that this interface change would have gotten more publicity.
The version in Fedora is still 3.1 but not latest 3.4.
I think it's possible to update it to 3.4 and then test again to see if it still exists.
The eGTK theme is compatible with GTK+3.4. So, it will never work correctly on Fedora releases which ship with Gnome 3.6, 3.8 etc.
I have the issue in F20 that marked checkboxes are shown as unmarked, in KDE with gtk style theme and egtk is active as the gtk theme.
Ping? Any news here?
Suggestion: use another theme ... one that works. Also, this does not look like it is fixed in rawhide either
Yo, package maintainer ... there are a lot of more recent version of this package at https://launchpad.net/egtk

Your suggestion is at least a practicible workaround. But still, there should be some effort working with upstream to get this theme usable, see comment #2. Alternatively, delete the package from repo (or retire it). Third, you could use Requires with any gnome-shell dependency to show the package is specially designed for Gnome3 only.
Please do not annoy people with a lazy packager job. They may leave Fedora completely because disappointed by empty the four F promises.
Vote +1 to ship version 3.4 instead, comment #1.

That would not be senseful. There's egtk-xfwm4-theme, so it MUST support proper usage also for xfce.
