[SOLVED] GTK programs reverting to odd styling templates

Postby Rayek on Sun Mar 11, 2012 2:19 am

After a few updates, the GTK programs I use (GIMP, Chrome) reset to a really strange Windows 200-ish, very ugly setting, and aren't taking style cues from my KDE settings like they used to. I have updated to KDE 4.8, am running Linux Min 12 KDE, and have been applying small updates when the list gets long, so every 4-5 days. I have tried to adjust the GTK+ style settings within the Application Appearance menu, but the options don't seem to affect the problem.

Is there something I installed or updated that I might be able to revert back to the Mint default, or something I could edit?

Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Code: Select all
ln -s ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 ~/.gtkrc-2.0

This was a beautifully amazingly quick fix. Thank you so much!

Out of curiosity, what changed?
