    Default Problem with Gtk2chtheme


    I recently installed gtk2-chtheme on my OpenSUSE 11.1 system.....
    everything was working fine till then.....
    Now after switching themes with it, I cant switch themes normally
    through my desktop appearence preferences....the theme doesnt change if
    I do that or the whole system freezes.

    I removed gtk2-chtheme......but all the settings done by it still
    remained and themes would only partially change....some settings like
    colors still remained....

    So now, I can only use this theme changer to switch themes and cant do
    it through desktop appearence preferences

    I want to get rid of this application, restore my previous settings and
    get my SUSE desktop back to normal.....how am I supposed to do that???
    Can I do it without a reinstall?? I want to completely get rid of that
    app as if it was never installed....

    Please help!!

    Try renaming your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file.

    yup renamed......what should I do next?? I hope u understood what my
    problem is....

    Gtk2-chtheme has taken control and if I need to fully change a
    theme....I need to use it.....

    Trying to change themes normally through appearence preferences causes
    the new theme to retain some aspects of the previous theme (coz the
    previous theme is still enabled in gtk2-chtheme)

    Or the system freezes......

    No, you are safe to install the application. Renaming the file just
    reset the preferences.
