Description of problem:
Sawfish is still compiled against Imlib and not gdk-pixbuf. While it makes 
(almost) no difference in terms of speed, certain advanced themes like Klarth 
requires gdk-pixbuf features to work properly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Klarth theme from www.sunshineinabag.co.uk
2. Untar to ~/.sawfish/themes
3. Select Klarth theme

Actual Results:  Ugly pink bars to the left and right of the centered title

Expected Results:  Real nice looking texture to left and right of centered title

Additional info:

Sawfish needs to be passed the configure option --with-gdk-pixbuf, Require 
needs to include gdk-pixbuf and BuildRequire to include gdk-pixbuf-devel

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-26 03:09:44 UTC
John Harper (Sawfish maintainer) still advises against compiling this way; 
that's why Sawfish doesn't build with gdk-pixbuf by default. I think it's best
to defer to his judgment on this point. He posted rationale to one of the GNOME
development lists recently, I don't remember all the details.

You might post a bug to bugzilla.gnome.org about the Klarth theme issues, 
I don't know if it's a bug in the theme or in Sawfish but John could maybe tell
you if you post there.

Ah, nevermind then, the GNOME developers have more pressing things to worry 
about ATPM than fixing a silly theme's interaction with Sawfish :p

Thanks HP, sometimes I wonder where you find the time to do things - the 
release announcement / installation banners must be referring to you! :p
