    Strange quirk in all themes, except for default

    Hi, I'm running 12.10 GNOME remix, but I've noticed that this works in normal Ubuntu as well. Whenever I change my theme to anything but the default, the right-click menus, along with a few other random text items throughout the OS, are surrounded with a rectangle. The rectangle's color varies based on the theme, but it only goes away if I switch back to the default. I 'll post a screenshot of the problem. Hopefully somebody has solved this problem in the past...

    I have seen this only when running Gnome 3.4 themes on 3.6 . Many 3.4 themes won't display properly on 3.6 .
    Infinite diversity in infinite combination.

    Hmm... Makes sense to me. Is there a way to adapt 3.4 themes to 3.6 without having to completely build a theme? This is one of the only dark themes I actually like, but those black bars are getting pretty annoying.

    You would have to have a good idea of what the differences are. I have read Some theme makers are getting frustrated because with every new release of Gnome their work is broken.

    Beware if you are using theme PPAS because because I have found some blogs that include 3.4 themes in there 12.10 PPAS. The theme at the link is an example. The author clearly says not to use version 1 it in Gnome 3.6 yet it can be found in 12.10 PPAS. http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=155346

    I wasn't aware that themes were that dependent on the GNOME version, I assumed it was mainly dependent on the major releases (2, 3, etc.) for some reason. Oh well, thanks. I'll see if the designer of this theme would be willing to update it...
