This theme totally rocks! Thanks!

I had to do this stuff to resolve some errors I encountered (my system is Ubuntu 8.10):

1.) I was getting this error in the Appearance util:
Quote:

This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ engine 'ubuntulooks' is not installed.

To fix this problem I installed the missing component with the terminal command:
Quote:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks


2.) The error msg then changed except instead of 'ubuntulooks' it just said "". So then I made these changes:
first backup the file to be changed:
Quote:

sudo cp /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.backup

then edit the gtkrc file as follows:
Quote:

sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Change the line:
Quote:
style "unstyle"
{
engine ""

to
Quote:

style "unstyle"
{
engine "ubuntulooks"
