Hey guys,

Downloaded the Nodoka theme engine and installed it from source. Then downloaded this theme and placed it in my home directory as .gtkrc-2.0 (also tried .gtkrc).

Still can't get it to work. What am I missing.

This is on a Debian Etch ppc

copy the folder "nodoka-clearlooks" from inside the arhive into a folder ".themes" your home directory.
but why don't you install it from the theme manager?

nice theme btw.

I don't use GNOME Desktop Environment so I don't have the theme manager installed. I just use a minimalist window manager called DWM and on top of that I have a few GTK apps.

This is the contents of my ~/.themes folder:

amit@debian:~$ ls .themes/
Cillop-Mediterranean Foresight MurrinaAquaIsh Nodoka-Clearlooks
amit@debian:~$

And the contents of my ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

amit@debian:~$ cat .gtkrc-2.0
#gtk-icon-theme-name = "nuoveXT.2.2"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome-icon-theme-2.18.0"
gtk-theme-name = "Nodoka-Clearlooks"
amit@debian:~$

Here is your problem.
gtk-chtheme = gtk2.x
gtk-theme-switch = gtk1.x

I haven't used a GTK theme in that way before so I don't know what to say. I just checked that it worked for GNOME.
The only thing I did was to get the default Nodoka theme and change a couple of symbolic colors in it. That can be done in the theme dialog as well but since most of people don't know that this option even exists, I decided to release it as a new Theme. I don't know much about gtkrc files and in fact, this is the first time that I release a gtkrc modification, which as I said, is very minor compared to the original Nodoka gtkrc file.

Try to use Nodoka theme instead of the Nodoka-Clearlooks one and see if that works. If it doesn't work, then is a problem of the original file if it works I'll look if I have to change some name or something like that.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried the Nodoka theme and it doesn't seem to work. I also tried several Murrina based themes and some of them do work and others don't. For example, Murrina-LemonGraphite and Foresight works but MurrinaSegPhault doesn't.

I am not an expert with GTK themes so I am not sure what seems to be going on.

Any suggestions?

I'm not a GTK expert too. Does it gives you some error when you launch an application from the console? When I was changing the colors the theme didn't load for me at first because I had a mistaken a symbolic color name. In that case I had a message saying:
"Cannot find symbolic color X" in the terminal so I knew why it didn't load.
Maybe is a problem with symbolic names. Maybe only GNOME supports this feature?

Sorry for the late reply.

No, I do not get any error when launching the applications from the console. All that happens is that the applications launched have no theme at all.

Also, I installed theme-switcher from the Debian Etch repos. I used it but to no avail.

I'm really confused as to what could be the issue.

You have to extract the included folder in ~/.themes where ~ is your home directory, then you can select the theme from the preferences dialog.

Thank you for responding.

Yes, I do have a ~/.themes folder and extracted the Nodoka-Clearlooks theme there.

I don't use the GNOME desktop environment but I use a lot GTK apps. I use the DWM window manager. I have successfully used GTK themes before by simply setting

gnome-theme-name = "<theme-name>"

in my .gtkrc-2.0 file.

But this doesn't seem to work with Nodoka-Clearlooks

Looks good. The checkbox colour annoys me, but that's certainly not your fault.

There's a screenshot now.
You are really fast because I forgot to put the screenshot but I uploaded it just one minute before uploading the theme.
Also I forgot to put the correct category, which is GTK2 theme and now it's fixed.
