Problem with gtk themes display

I am running Gnome on my new Arch box and I encounter some strange problems. In Debian, I was able to compile and use some gtk engines like gflat, rezlooks or murrina. Now I tried to compile them on Arch and they do compile okay, but they do not work as expected. Either I get a simple gtk1 layout or I get a broken gtk2 theme (murrina e.g.) where gradients don't work and sliders that are e.g. pink on the left and gray on the right side.

Did anyone else experience this and what could cause this problem?

Re: Problem with gtk themes display

the problem is gtk-2.10 looking in a different place for theming engines. I'll release a new rezlooks soon, but in the meantime you can fix it by symlinking the engines in /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/engines/ to /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/

Simply rebuilding the rezlooks engine against gtk2-2.10.1 correctly found the right directory for me at least.

[john@metatron ~]$ pacman -Ql gtk-engine-rezlooks
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/lib/
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/
gtk-engine-rezlooks /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/librezlooks.so

Also, here's my PKGBUILD for it.

pkgname=gtk-engine-rezlooks
pkgver=0.6
pkgrel=2
pkgdesc="Rezlooks GTK2 engine"
url="http://www.gnomelook.org"
depends=('gtk2' 'cairo')
source=(http://www.gnome-look.org/content/files/39179-rezlooks-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=('87b768eb372dd5065f9e36bf10245ac7')

# Changelog:
#   0.6-2: Rebuilt against gtk2-2.10.1

build() {
        cd $startdir/src/rezlooks-$pkgver
        ./configure 
                --prefix=/usr 
                --enable-animation
        make || return 1
        make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
        find $startdir/pkg -name '*.la' -exec rm {} ;
}

Re: Problem with gtk themes display

Thank you for the information. I already thought of a possible problem with gtk2.10 but had no proof that the switch to gtk2.10 has something to do with it.
