Themes Keep Changing [SOLVED]

Bye the way... LOVING XFCE!

I have run in to one problem, however.  Each time I log in, the User Interface theme I have selected... is not used.  I have to go in to Xfce Settings manager, click "user interface preferences" and then unselect the theme i want (it still shows as the active one... but its not), and then re-select it again. 

If it matters, I'm using the Darklooks theme... and after a log out/log in... its not so dark looking smile.  For the most part, i believe the other themes are not affected.

Any suggestions?

Sound like you have a /home/user/.gtkrc-2.0 that is setting the theme on start up.
if you remove that file or remove any include line this will allow xfce to set the theme.

Re: Themes Keep Changing [SOLVED]

Thanks for the response!

That would make sense!  ... however I do not have a .gtkrc-2.0 file in my home directory at all!


$ ls ~/.gtk*
.gtk-bookmarks

One thing I have found, however is that it may actually be starting with the correct theme... and the problem is with the theme itself.

If i start with another theme and then select the Darklooks theme, it comes up in a light-not-very-dark-at-all-looks theme.  Its the same theme that shows up if I log in with Darklooks selected.  In both scenarios, I have to select another theme and then go back and re-select dark looks for it to... look dark.

This is very odd!

This is exactly why I dumped *buntu and went back to Mepis/Debian....AntiX. The same issues/problems/breakage moving through versions. I got tired fixing the same ones over and over again as well as new ones.
