Manually fixing bug with Darklooks GTK-theme and Compiz

This is annoying: Whenever I install a new GNOME-Desktop with my favourite Darklooks theme from the gnome-theme-extras package (in Ubuntu) I am confronted by this silly bug. As soon as I change to the compiz-window-manager it starts resetting the theme to default colours.Finally found the corresponding bug report. To fix it open the file /usr/share/themes/Darklooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and edit it like follows:

clipped from bugs.launchpad.net

You can fix it by changing the two tooltip lines…

from:

181: bg[NORMAL] = @tooltip_bg_color
182: fg[NORMAL] = @tooltip_fg_color

to:

181: bg[NORMAL] = @tooltips_bg_color
182: fg[NORMAL] = @tooltips_fg_color

  1. This is a wrong bugfix, the real bug is the top of file as show here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/gnome-themes-extras/+bug/215472/comments/23


    gtk_color_scheme = “fg_color:#E6E6E6\nbg_color:#555753\nbase_color:#2E3436\ntext_color:#D3D7CF\nselected_bg_color:#3F403D\nselected_fg_color:#7AA3CC\ntooltips_bg_color:#EDDE5C\ntooltips_fg_color:#000000″

    the problem start in top of file not at line 181, chan the tooltips for tooltip like this:

    gtk_color_scheme = “fg_color:#E6E6E6\nbg_color:#555753\nbase_color:#2E3436\ntext_color:#D3D7CF\nselected_bg_color:#3F403D\nselected_fg_color:#7AA3CC\ntooltip_bg_color:#EDDE5C\ntooltip_fg_color:#000000″

    The is the real fix for bug.
