    Default gtk theme reverts to default at xstart

    Hi, I recently switched to opensuse 11.1 (gnome) from ubuntu cause it is more compatible with my eee pc 1000h by default.

    I ran into a few problems that I'm sure is self inflicted, the main one at the moment is the gtk theme.

    The gtk theme reverts to the default opensuse branding style every time I login. When I open the "slab >> control center >> appearance" the selection is still my customized theme but the window decoration displays the default, although my icon set (displayed) is retained.

    Every time I login i must switch the theme to something other than my customized theme or what my customized theme is based off of, then back to get it to properly display.

    I believe this is due to my installation of gtk_theme_switcher then removing it because it was not necessary. I have tried to reinstall the program and use it to change my theme but it still did not retain the changes.

    Anyone have any similar problem or ideas?

    p.s. first post!

    Hi
    No issues here. Open the gconf-editor and browse to the desktop ->
    gnome -> interface section and see if it looks ok.

    Can your create a test user and login, do you still have the same
    issues?

    I have tried it with the root user also, it retains the icon set and reverts the window theme in the same fashion.

    About gconf-editor, I just tried to run and this is most likely my problem. I am working right now to resolve this.

    Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See GConf configuration system for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)

    Well I got gconf-editor to run but when i did i recived some errors pertaining to the specific theme i wanted to use and i'm sure that was causing the revert. I then switched to a different theme and logged off then on and it was retained.

    I will just get a new theme or find a copy of it and replace.

    Thanks for your help.
