I'm using XFCE and installed the adwaita-x-dark-and-light-theme from AUR. With the normal Awaita theme everything is fine but using Adwaita-X-dark or -light breaks checkbox (and I think also radio button) dialogues here. It then looks like this:
I didn't find reports from others with the same problem so I was wondering whether the theme is broken or whether its a specific problem here.
I'm using adwaita-x-light theme from http://gnome-look.org/. And i have no problem.
I chek the difference between my installation from gnome-look and the PKGBUILD from AUR.
I find that the AUR PKGBUILD install theme with 644 permission on /usr/share/themes/Adwaita-X-light/
On my laptop all the directoty in /usr/share/themes have 755 permission
After testing, I have a problem if have set 644 on /usr/share/themes/Adwaita-X-light/ directory
You can test, to check if you have the same behavior with
sudo chmod -R 755 /usr/share/themes/Adwaita-X-light/
Thanks for your reply. For me this doesn't fix the problem. I also tried installing it directly from gnome-look and get the same problem. It only happens with these two themes, the normal Adwaita works...I also of course installed the dependencies of the AUR package. Anybody any idea?
Checkbuttons (Checkboxes) and radiobuttons on Adwaita-X are SVG files, maybe you don't have librsvg installed in your system. Run any GTK2 program (ie gtk-demo) from a terminal and check for GDK errors.
