Panel not following theme

I'm using Xubuntu 16.04 and xfce4-panel is version 4.12.0.  After a dist-upgrade and reboot, my panels are suddenly not following the theme I've been using for years.  In fact, they won't follow *any* theme.

All panels are configured to system style.  They will use a solid color configured in the panel settings, but that doesn't help because the foreground color will still be wrong.

Any ideas?

Re: Panel not following theme

Hello and welcome.

Which GTK appearance theme are you using?
Also, do you have an ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file and if so, what are the contents of that file?

Also helpful might be your X session error file. I can't remember for Xubuntu 16.04, but it is either ~/.xsession-errors or ~/.cache/upstart/startxfce4.log

You can also run xfce4-panel in debug mode to see if that yields any interesting results.

Thanks.  There was a section that had been automatically added to my .gtkrc-2.0 a couple months ago that seemed to have taken effect after the reboot.

Re: Panel not following theme

Hello!
I have the same problem on openSUSE.
Can you tell me more details, please?
What is wrong in .gtkrc-2.0?

Re: Panel not following theme

The section I removed was put there by Theme Configuration.  The "custom panel colors" switch had been enabled somehow.  The added lines were surrounded by some comments about custom styles.

Re: Panel not following theme

Thanks! I found that the problem was in oxygen-gtk theme engine which was left by KDE.
