PostPosted: Mon Aug 20, 2012 2:07 am    Post subject: [Solved] Gtk3 application appearance discrepancy Reply with quote

I have two computers running XFCE 4.10. On one, applications using GTK+3 look fine, but on the other, they look terrible (both screenshots show gnome-extra/gucharmap-3.2.2). On both computers, I have x11-themes/gtk-engines-xfce-3.0.0-r200 and x11-themes/gtk-engines-xfce-3.0.0-r300 installed, and I have the same ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini file:
Code:
[Settings]
gtk-font-name=Sans Serif 9
gtk-theme-name=Xfce
gtk-icon-theme-name=tango
gtk-fallback-icon-theme=gnome
gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS
gtk-menu-images=1
gtk-button-images=1


The computer that looks correct has x11-libs/gtk+-3.2.4-r1, while the ugly one has x11-libs/gtk+-3.4.4, but I wouldn't expect it to make that much of a difference.

What am I missing? Why is there such a difference in appearance between the two? If anyone has any suggestions on how I could improve this, it would be greatly appreciated

I would try using gtk 3.2 on the 'ugly' one, and see if it makes a difference.

Well, actually 3.2->3.4 might very well be the key difference here.
There were theme breaking changes between those versions, mainly related to making background style changes behave more css-like.

Indeed, downgrading to x11-libs/gtk+3.2.4-r1 and rebuilding all applications that depended on gtk+:3 solved the problem. I guess I will just mask >=x11-libs/gtk+-3.4 until the XFCE Gtk+ engine gets updated.

Thanks for the advice.

Xfce changelog for 4.10 wrote:

Theme Engine (gtk-xfce-engine)
Added Gtk 3.4 support to the engine.
Default themes don't support Gtk+-3.4


It looks like the engine has support for 3.4 but default themes don't support it.
