I use vmware and when via command line I do


sudo vmware-fuseUI

I get following warning



(vmware-fuseUI:4188): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",


upon doing some search I found package


sudo aptitude search gtk | grep murrine
p gtk2-engines-murrine - cairo-based gtk+-2.0 theme engine

but when I try to install it


sudo aptitude install gt2k-engines-murrine
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "gt2k-engines-murrine"
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "gt2k-engines-murrine"

So what did I do wrong in above ?

It is a simple misspelling. Should be "gtk2-engines-murrine"

Sorry it was a type error while posting on forum,had it been an error at my end it would have given no such package with given name.After your message I rechecked and
did


sudo aptitude install gtk2-engines-murrine
but the warning still remains the same.

It's only a low-important warning anyway. Unless the vmware applications looks terrible and un-themed, I wouldn't worry about it.

On my VMware installation at work, I get that error a lot as well. As thaelim says, though, I think it's a low importance warning, and I don't seem to see any negative effects from it.
