Issues in a GTK+2 Theme

Postby Anas R. » Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:00 am

Hi all,

I've developed my own theme for Linux Mint:
I have some issues with it:

1) When I choose this theme for the first time, everything works fine.
.. but once I reboot, it becomes like this:
The text color of the active item in the Mint menu doesn't comply the theme's color: white.
Here's the content of the mintmenu.rc file:

Code: Select all

style "mintmenu-style"
   bg[PRELIGHT]   = @selected_bg_color
   bg[SELECTED]   = @selected_bg_color
   bg[ACTIVE]      = @selected_bg_color

   fg[PRELIGHT]   = @selected_fg_color
   fg[SELECTED]   = @selected_fg_color
   fg[ACTIVE]      = @selected_fg_color

   text[PRELIGHT]   = @selected_fg_color
   text[SELECTED]   = @selected_fg_color
   text[ACTIVE]      = @selected_fg_color

widget "mintmenu.*" style "mintmenu-style"

2) I'm trying to use this theme for GDM using the following command:

Code: Select all

 sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 -t str -s /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme RichStyle

.. but I failed, although this command works fine with Clearlooks:

Code: Select all

 sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 -t str -s /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme Clearlooks

Thanks in advance.
