How To: Fix Panel Theming in the Default Bianca Themes

Postby zephyrus54 on Wed Mar 28, 2007 4:34 pm

Some of you have mentioned having problems with changing the default panel theme in Bianca, as some parts of the panel retain the default theme even after changing the panel background.

This behavior is dependent on your theme's gtkrc file. This can usually be corrected by commenting out or altering certain lines that apply a theme to the taskbar and other areas of the panel.

Here are directions if you're using either the default Bianca (Blue) or Bianca (Green) theme:

For Bianca (Blue)
1. Navigate to /usr/share/themes/Murrina-IndustrialSM/gtk-2.0 as root and open the gtkrc file (choose to "Display" the file when it asks)
2. Look for the following section: style "panelbg"
3. Where it says bg_pixmap [NORMAL] = "3" change the "3" to a "4"
4. Go to the theme manager and reload the theme (you can click on another theme and then just click back)

For Bianca (Green)
1. Navigate to /usr/share/themes/MurrinaFancyGrass/gtk-2.0 as root and open the gtkrc file (choose to "Display" the file when it asks)
2. Look for the following section: style "panelbg"
3. Where it says bg_pixmap [NORMAL] = "3" change the "3" to a "4"
4. Go to the theme manager and reload the theme (you can click on another theme and then just click back)

BTW, after the modification to gtkrc, invoking beryl-manager from within Terminal will cause the following error messages, just prior to Beryl's usual status messages...

/usr/share/themes/MurrinaFancyGrass/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:75: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "4"
/usr/share/themes/MurrinaFancyGrass/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:75: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "4"
/usr/share/themes/MurrinaFancyGrass/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:75: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "4"


There's no apparent effect on Beryl's subsequent proper operation.
