View Full Version : Two problems cancelled eachother out

Funny thing that makes me love Linux.

Months ago, I installed gtk-engines-qt or whatever it's called, so my Gnome programs will look "native" in KDE. Unfortunately, this package stopped me from being able to boot into Gnome (known bug) so I got rid of it, but unfortunately it made my Gnome menu fonts bigger than what they should've been.

Today I found about a package called gtk-theme-switch, which lets you change the GTK theme from within a non-GTK desktop environment (like KDE). So I started up a nested X session with KDE and ran the program, changing my controls theme to Clearlooks within KDE. Unfortunately it also changed it for my Gnome, and confused Gnome's theme manager.

So I just booted up the program within Gnome to change the theme back to what it should be, and what do you know? It also changed my Gnome menu fonts back to the size they really should be!

Two mistakes I made actually cancelled eachother out!

Random things causes random fixes. Happens to me quite a lot.
