View Full Version : [ubuntu] No matter what theme I'm using the color doesn't change.

Not sure how I set the color to be a constant, but whenever I change my theme the colors stay blue. The fonts/graphics change but the colors don't change.

How do I undo this? :-(

Bump, just in case!

Try this, right click your desktop and select "change desktop background"
go to the "theme" tab and click "customize"
go to the "colors" tab and see if hitting the "reset to defaults" button will work.

Sorry, should have mentioned I tried that, but it's greyed out. i.e Already thinks it's at the default settings. I have it on the Crux theme and where there should be purple there is still just blue. :-(

It changes the theme just not the color. ?? Hmmmm...

That is odd...

:lol: Oh well, I should make some backup discs any way. Maybe I'll just do a re-install.

New clue: I get this error message when I right click > Change Desktop Background. I click "ok" and then it does go to the Appearance Preferences anyway.

Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with Bonobo, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.
