• Ugly windows


    *Openbox Desktop*

    Some windows on my desktop look ugly while others look as they should, ‘numix’.
    Like this is numix themed:

    but this isn’t :

    To reproduce, install wps office and click on ‘load from existing template’ in menu.
    or simply just look at the interface of netbeans.

    I’ve checked both lxappearance and the openbox configuration manager thoroughly, nothing seems wrong (or non numix xD).
    I waana have fine-looking windows.
    Not windows 95 looking windows!

  • Hi,

    Do you know which toolkit is wps-office using? QT? GTK?

  • mmmm… maybe there’s a problem with the Qt setup?

    Are you starting openbox with .xinitrc ? Could you add this BEFORE calling openbox-session in .xinitrc to see if it helps?

    export GTK2\_RC\_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"
    
  • tried that, it didn’t help.
    besides, I don’t login with startx, I login with ightdm(default)

    I tried to use qtconfig [/usr/lib/qt4/bin/qtconfig] but I don’t see any numix theme in it either

  • Hi,

    Have you tried selecting GTK+ in qtconfig? Why did you install qtcurve?

    Cheers!

  • Here’s a quick reply :D

    GTK+ makes them look like this

  • Hi,

    Do you have the same problems with other QT based programs? I’m trying to know if it’s something specific to wps or is QT centric.

    Oh, and you tried to open a terminal, put the export that I told you and then call the wps from that terminal?

    Yes, vokoscreen looks ugly too.

    Done, still ugly :/
    I just noticed When I open WPS from terminal, I get this little error

    QGtkStyle could not resolve GTK. Make sure you have installed the proper libraries.

  • Did everything there, except installing libgnomeui.
    No success. Although the qt theme did apply to qtconfig.

    Can’t really tell if vokoscreen is numix now you know it better :/

    WPS still shows that error and wps window is still ugly. I wouldn’t care if that problem is only limited to that wps but I’m gonna install netbeans and something tells me netbeans is gonna look ugly too because last time when I was on arch Gnome, it did look all windows95 like :/
