Hey there,

I followed the instructions and was able to compile it.

I even downloaded the nodoka gtk theme and copied it to a ~/.themes directory

And I have a .gtkrc-2.0 file with the following lines:

gtk-theme-name = "Nodoka"

But I can't get it too work. I don't use GNOME environment but I use GTK apps. Other themes work. Any ideas?

Sorry for the late reply.

No, I do not get any error when launching the applications from the console. All that happens is that the applications launched have no theme at all.

Also, I installed theme-switcher from the Debian Etch repos. I used it but to no avail.

I'm really confused as to what could be the issue. - Sep 27 2007
Thanks for the reply.

I tried the Nodoka theme and it doesn't seem to work. I also tried several Murrina based themes and some of them do work and others don't. For example, Murrina-LemonGraphite and Foresight works but MurrinaSegPhault doesn't.

I am not an expert with GTK themes so I am not sure what seems to be going on.

Any suggestions? - Sep 26 2007

I don't use GNOME Desktop Environment so I don't have the theme manager installed. I just use a minimalist window manager called DWM and on top of that I have a few GTK apps.

This is the contents of my ~/.themes folder:

amit@debian:~$ ls .themes/
Cillop-Mediterranean Foresight MurrinaAquaIsh Nodoka-Clearlooks

And the contents of my ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

amit@debian:~$ cat .gtkrc-2.0
#gtk-icon-theme-name = "nuoveXT.2.2"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome-icon-theme-2.18.0"
gtk-theme-name = "Nodoka-Clearlooks"

Thank you for responding.

Yes, I do have a ~/.themes folder and extracted the Nodoka-Clearlooks theme there.

I don't use the GNOME desktop environment but I use a lot GTK apps. I use the DWM window manager. I have successfully used GTK themes before by simply setting

gnome-theme-name = "<theme-name>"

in my .gtkrc-2.0 file.

But this doesn't seem to work with Nodoka-Clearlooks - Sep 25 2007
Hey guys,

Downloaded the Nodoka theme engine and installed it from source. Then downloaded this theme and placed it in my home directory as .gtkrc-2.0 (also tried .gtkrc).

Still can't get it to work. What am I missing.

This is on a Debian Etch ppc - Sep 25 2007
