Re: QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.

gconftool-2 --set --type string /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme your-theme-name

This, alone, worked for me. I'm using Gnome 3 and although I have a GTK them compatible with GTK2 and GTK3 (Zukitwo), I'm running what looks like to be pure GTK3 apps and a few QT ones (e.g virtualbox). One has to remember to rerun the command if the GTK3 theme is changed, for consistency...

I had the same issue with Cinnamon 1.6 and VirtualBox which uses QT.

Using the above command for my default GTK theme Adwaita did the trick.

Thank you.

Re: QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.

Just a small update.

gconftool-2 --set --type string /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme your-theme-name

makes Virtualbox using the correct gtk theme but not the cursor or icon theme.

In order to set the correct icon theme run:

gconftool-2 --set --type string /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme your-theme-name

For the cursor theme another addition step is required.

First set the gconf value:

gconftool-2 --set --type string /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme your-theme-name

Now create a folder 'default' in /usr/share/icons and add the following lines to a file called 'index.theme':

[Icon Theme]
Inherits=Adwaita

You are done. Virtualbox should now use the same icon and cursor theme.

Re: QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.

i already had that line:

export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0" &

in my xinitrc but it didn't work. well the culprit turned out to be the "&" in the end. removed that and now it works (again), on an openbox environment without any gtk3.
so check that before you go installing libgnomeui!


edit: weirdness! i just wanted to check if i can undo this, but i can't! i removed the line from xinitrc and rebooted just to be sure.
the var GTK2_RC_FILES is empty now, but qt apps (pkgbrowser, vlc) still use my current gtk style (i don't have and never had libgnomeui installed).
[the reason i tried is because qt4 isn't rendering pixel/bitmap fonts properly, so i would like it to use my gtk style, but a different font.]
