Description of problem:
OpenOffice.org won't use the currently set GNOME theme or GNOME font
if nautilus is not running. I prefer to run my GNOME session without
running nautilus for performance reasons. If nautilus is not running
(i.e. if I shut it down via gnome-session-properties) then
OpenOffice.org reverts to the default theme and fonts, and neither the
GTK theme nor the currently set font is used by OpenOffice.org's GUI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new user account
3. Run OpenOffice.org from menu
4. Note that themes and font can be varied by changing values in Theme
and Font under Preferences
5. Close OpenOffice.org
6. Run gnome-session-properties from gnome-terminal
7. Go to current session programs tab, highlight "nautilus", click
"Remove" then "Apply". Note that GNOME desktop stops running
8. Re-run OpenOffice.org from menu, note that interface reverts to default
9. Try changing Theme and Font from Preferences, note no change in
10. Restart nautilus, note that themes in OOo return.
Actual Results: When nautilus is not running, neither themes nor font
changes will change OOo's interface font.
Expected Results: I would expect that the themes and font changes
would be reflected in OOo. Changes to theme and font DO take effect
for all other apps, such as gnome-terminal, galeon, epiphany etc. OOo
is the only app that behaves this way when nautilus is not running,
why should it behave any differently from other GNOME apps?
The Fedora Core 2 update release [openoffice.org-1.1.2-10.fc2] (which
is a new upstream version) appears to fix problem. Now, whether or
not nautilus is running, the theme is the current GTK2 theme, rather
than the default OOo theme. Theme changes also appear to be sticky.
Closing this bug.
