Thread: Gtk/Gnome apps are unstable with Opensuse 13.1 kde

    Default Gtk/Gnome apps are unstable with Opensuse 13.1 kde

    Hi all,

    I'm running OS 13.1 KDE with nvidia graphics (x11-video-nvidiaG02) and have noticed that Gtk/Gnome apps are seriously unstable.

    I use gnucash and it's obviously not working properly, it crashes regularly with a segfault. I attempted to use gparted to reformat a usb stick and it crashed. Libreoffice looks terrible under OS 13.1 kde, the fonts are mangled in the menu.

    Any ideas how to sort this out?

    Thanks for any help.

    Running both KDE and GNOME on my laptop, I don't have these issues. Did you check the install media? Was it like this immediately after install? Any extra repos added (post output, between CODE tags, the # in the editor)
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    Plus, do you have more info on your system? I.e.
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    Just a wild guess (after solving my banshee crashing problems), perhaps your GTK/Gnome issues are related to the same issue?

    I changed "Configure Desktop", "Application Appearance", "GTK", "GTK2 Theme" from "Oxygen" to "Oxygen Molecule" (KDE:Extra).

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the help guys, I installed gtk oxygen-molecule theme and gnucash is now much more stable, Libreoffice fonts are still mangled though. Libreoffice looks so much better on a gnome based desktop like mate.

    check to see if you have ibus installed.
    If so remove it and see if that improves the look of Libreoffice.
    (also make sure you have libreoffice-kde4 installed)

    Default Gtk/Gnome apps are unstable with Opensuse 13.1 kde [SOLVED]

    Thanks for all the help guys,

    In the end I installed qtcurve style/theme for KDE4 & GTK2 - all the gtk/gnome apps I use (eg gnucash) are now stable.

    For LibreOffice, I removed libreoffice-kde4 and installed libreoffice-gnome (which installed ibus and a few other dependencies)- libreoffice looks a lot better and the menu bar and menus are no longer garbled.
