, we figured out how to fix a Mint-X theme issue for a widget style. However, the fix involved editing /usr/share/themes/Mint-X/gtk-2.0/gtkrc to put in the desired style change. I tried putting the same "fix" into ~/.gtkrc-2.0, but that didn't work. I know I could also copy the whole theme to ~/.themes and make the change there, but that seems a bit much for such a small tweak. Is there someplace this fix could be installed other than those mentioned above?
