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.]

However studied and stilted your rant, it can never hide the base and primitve emotion that inspired it.

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

Got the same problem when I tried to start a script and can't find a way to resolve it.

martin@archlinux ~/Téléchargements> ./Installe_Assistant_Telechargement.bash
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme

Well, after trying some program installation, I don't get the message, but the bash doesn't start. Nothing happen, maybe I should start another thread?

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

Well it start only in root. I think it's related to the program himself or still a problem of permission that I have since I installed Arch. Need to read a lot to understand Arch...

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

As mentioned it is quite unlikely this is the same underlying issue and your problem is likely related to this very specific program, whatever it is exactly, you might want to elaborate on that.

Closing this 10 year old thread.
