    gtk theme not displaying properly for pidgin or hexchat

    I went to make my gtk theme the same pidgin theme I saw somebody online using. However, it's not displaying properly. Example, the bottom "Available" box is square. Green is not showing up in the menus, but it is showing up in some places in Pidgin and Hexchat. Why am I having these problems and how can I fix them?

    It should look like this:

    Looking in the comments of his blog (scroll up for pidgin screenshots), he said he's using this Clearlooks-DarkLime gtk theme. I tested this with Hexchat too with the same problems:

    I had found some instructions online for changing pidgins gtk theme, but all the theme gave me was a gtkrc file, so I used that to replace these:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\Gtk\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc
    C:\Program Files\HexChat\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc
