Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449428
Please apply fix for Darklooks' gtkrc
Last modified: 2008-06-24 22:52:39 EDT
Darklooks GTK+ theme is broken in Fedora 9. Many applications start with default
(ugly and not dark at all) theme, some of them react to theme changes after
startup, some don't.
This is GNOME bug #528322
Patch is available here:
I confirm the patch works and fixes Darklooks for all applications. I don't know
what is upstream's roadmap for the next gnome-themes-extras release, but it
needs a fix right now.
The workaround is patching /usr/share/themes/Darklooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc by hand and
that's what I've done.
Ok have updated it finally. Had issues with my F9. Will be uploaded shortly. Do
you know who provided the patch?
