Problem with GTK Themes in Gnome 3.8

Hello everyone

I just installed gnome 3.8 and I applied some themes, but these themes do not apply to window bar always showing me the default theme buttons. I have tried everything with no solution.

Any ideas?

Re: Problem with GTK Themes in Gnome 3.8

Hi,

There is something missing in your system, in my Arch updated there is an option called "Current Theme" (in portuguese: Tema Atual). In your screenshort there isn't this option that modify the window border theme.

@marcio

I just install gnome 3.8 from scratch, Does your gnome shell was an uptade or new install? It is a weird thing, since I cant find any solution, I have installed all packages from gnome and gnome extra hmm

Re: Problem with GTK Themes in Gnome 3.8

I had the same problem when trying to install the "Uncomplicated" theme. I'm not sure if it's a proper solution but changing the window theme by using gsettings worked for me.

 gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "ThemeName" 

where "ThemeName" denotes the name of the theme you want to install. For instance by installing the window theme for "Uncomplicated" I used

 gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "Uncomplicated" 

By the way I found this code on http://www.fandigital.com/2012/06/chang … gnome.html

Hope this helps.


Note: If I put the theme files on /usr/share/themes and run the above commands as root I got some errors. Later I put the theme files on ~/.themes then run the command as a regular user. Then It worked.

Weird but it works, the only thing I guess is that gnome-tweak-tool has some bugs when applying themes.

Re: Problem with GTK Themes in Gnome 3.8

I have just the same problem and the following code doesn't apply in my situation.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme "ThemeName" 

I do have a current theme option in gnome-tweak-tool, but I found no custom theme choice in current theme option. I have to choose between awaita and high contrast. Customs themes, for example "FlatStudio", can only be chosen in gtk+ theme. Did I miss any thing? I just extracted the themes in ~./themes fold.
ps. using the code above, my themes automatically changes to something like HighContrast.

I have the same problem, but if you noticed you can change the window bar theme with some default themes, so i guess there's some incompabilitie with the old themes.

Re: Problem with GTK Themes in Gnome 3.8

Dirty− however less dirty than actual python code − hack to have some keys back in Gnome-tweak-tool; in file /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtweak/gsettings.py, add the two following lines:

        if schema_name == "org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences":
            schema_filename = schema_name + ".gschema.xml"

Just before the following code (normally around line 35):

        if not schema_filename:
            schema_filename = schema_name + ".gschema.xml"

Edit: It works at least for the Actual theme option & the Windows tab; see:
