GTK Gnome theme not taking effect
 
Hi all.

I have set "HighContrastInverse" theme via "lxappearance" on my Fedora-14.
Upon doing it, the contents of "~/.gtkrc-2.0" are rightly set as ::

Code:

# DO NOT EDIT! This file will be overwritten by LXAppearance.
# Any customization should be done in ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine instead.

gtk-theme-name="HighContrastInverse"
gtk-icon-theme-name="Fedora"
gtk-font-name="Sans 10"
gtk-cursor-theme-name="dmz-aa"
gtk-cursor-theme-size=24
gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_BOTH_HORIZ
gtk-toolbar-icon-size=GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR
gtk-button-images=0
gtk-menu-images=0
gtk-enable-event-sounds=1
gtk-enable-input-feedback-sounds=0
include "/home/ajay/.gtkrc-2.0.mine"


Also, note ::

Code:

[ajay@localhost ~]$ ls -l /usr/share/themes/

Finally, the settings are persisted upon reboot.


HOWEVER, I never get to see the highly differentiated "HighContrastInverse" theme :-\


What (fundamentally) mistake am I doing?


I will be grateful for a reply.


Thanks and Regards,
Ajay
