GTK just doesn't install, can't get a theme to work. (XFCE)

Hey, new Linux user here and I got openSUSE. What I want to do is install the Windows XP Royale Dark theme on XFCE, but it’s been a huge headache. I can’t even get GTK to install properly, something about “ruby” application not allowing me to, can’t install KDE Connect because of that either. I got the Royale Dark theme to work at least, but the entire panel test is black and I have no idea how to change it to white, it’s almost unreadable.

update: got the GTK3 installer with YaST to work, but it only installed it partially due to some error. The panel is all messed up too with any theme - the clock, tray and menu sections are popping out of the panel like they are too big.

Hello and welcome to the openSUSE forums.

All people here are rather normal and not clairvoyant. Thus they can only act on factual information. Saying things like “due to some error” and “something about something not allwoing me” are not factual information in computer science.

Thus please, step by step: what do you do, what did you expect to happen and what happens. Best with copy/paste of terminal commands and their output (see below on how to post it).

When you have to rely on screen shots to provide information, you can post them to .

There is an important, but not easy to find feature on the forums.

Please in the future use CODE tags around copied/pasted computer text in a post. It is the # button in the tool bar of the post editor. When applicable copy/paste complete, that is including the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt.

An example is here: Using CODE tags Around your paste.
