I working on getting a fluxbox-based desktop working on an install done off the Minimal CD, and gnome themes aren't working correctly for me. I installed both the Darkilouche (http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2/1285) and Clearlooks-DarkLime (http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2/1364) by extracting the contents to ~/.themes, but when I include them in my .gtkrc file, it only seems to partially apply the theme. The buttons on firefox, for instance, still have square corners, instead of the rounded ones depicted at the download pages. What else do I have to do to get the themes working?

Do you have the clearlooks engine installed? I usually install the gtk2-engines package or even gnome-themes and gnome-themes-extras, which will pull in gtk2-engines.

You are most welcome. Thanks for the tip about those two themes. I've been looking for something new. :D
