View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't install BlueSpace theme correctly

April 7th, 2009, 04:24 PM
I installed the theme Bluespace onto my computer (ubuntu 8.10) and dragged it into my Appearances box. Now when I click on the theme to apply it, it tells me that "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine " is not installed"

This has happened with some other themes too. Could someone please tell me what I have to do (I'm pretty sure it requires editing the gtkrc file) to make it work?

:) Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me

Install the gtk2 engine:

Write this in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines
