OpenOffice & gtk styles

Hi all!

I am using openoffice2-1.9.104-1, I do not know exactly what version but since then my openoffice does not use my gtk2 theme, maybe since version 1.9.65. How can I fix it? cos the default gtk2 (or it is gtk1??) theme is really ugly...

Thanks!

IIRC, you have to add something to the OO.org command line if you're not using GNOME as your desktop environment for the GTK2 theme to be used. I know that it's on this forum somewhere but just can't remember where.

Assuming you are not running GNOME...
Put these in .xinitrc/.xsession/.bashrc or whatever you know will be executed on login.

export GDK_USE_XFT=1
export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

be sure you have in your home .gtkrc-2.0 in which your favorite theme is included (something like this)

include "/usr/share/themes/Industrial/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

reboot, restart X or reload shell (depending where you put those exports)
