Manipulating the keyboard layout settings resets the "GTK" theme to
"Clearlooks" when it used to be "Bluecurve"! 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute "gnome-keyboard-properties".
2. Play around with the layout scheme settings.
Actual results:
"GTK" theme gets reset to "Clearlooks".

Expected results:
"GTK" theme shouldn't have been altered.

hmm, doesn't happen here. Can you describe your "playing around" in more detail ?
What version of xorg-x11-xkbdata do you have ?
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-02 10:36:58 EST
I wonder if settings daemon is crashing...
Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2006-03-02 14:31:13 EST
To reverify the issue once again, I execute the following steps using
the mouse solely, not the keyboard:

1. Remove all dot directories (.gnome2, ..) in my account to reset them
   to factory defaults.
2. Upon log-in, set "GTK" theme to "Bluecurve". Works.
3. Launch "gnome-keyboard-properties".
4. Go to "Layouts" (Keyboard model: "Generic 105-key (Intl) PC",
   Scheme: "German Eliminate dead keys").
5. Click "Add..."
6. Select "U.S. English layout".
7. Confirm ("OK").

Bingo! The theme switches instantaneously to "Clearlooks". Reopen
"gnome-theme-manager", and see the theme switch back to "Bluecurve"
wich is still selected there. Version of "xorg-x11-xkbdata" is 1.0.1-6
which is the latest one. Without yesterday's "xorg-x11-xkbdata" mess,
I would have probably never noticed this one!

Bug still present in "control-center-2.14.0-1". I checked with the
live CD of another distro that the issue is not Fedora specific.
It occurs there, too.

Hi Joachim, 

what if you upgrade to the libxklavier in rawhide?
Comment 6 Joachim Frieben 2006-03-15 14:38:07 EST
I installed the system from scratch yesterday (rawhide 03/14/06).
Todays updates were obviously also installed, thus including
"control-center-2.14.0-1" as stated in commet #4. Anything else
to update to?
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-03-15 15:20:30 EST
No that should have everything (assuming you have libxklavier-

I'm fairly sure this is a duplicate of bug 183569, but it could be the
workaround added to libxklavier to help address that bug doesn't actually work
around all the problem cases.
