I tried creating a new account and gedit looks weird there too.



In my home folder, I can find .gtkrc-2.0-kde4. It contains one line of code:

Code:
include "/usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
Try renaming it to ".gtkrc-2.0" (i.e. without -kde4 suffix), see if that makes any difference.

I rename .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 to .gtkrc-2.0, reboot and find that there is a new file called .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 (obviously created by the operative system) and whose contents is identical to .gtkrc-2.0.

The graphics of gedit is still the same.

By the way, I installed Kubuntu 11.10 on a another computer, updated everything, rebooted, installed gedit, rebooted, and it seems to be the case that gedit looks exactly the same like I have described before for the current that I am using. It seems to have some ancient kind of primitive graphics.

Hmm... weird. Is the file /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc in place and are the permissions correct?

I think so.

Code:
dagge@dagge-dator:~$ ls -n /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 6623 2011-08-13 17:32 /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
I have one more clue. If loading gedit from the command line, I get this error message:
Code:
dagge@dagge-dator:~$ gedit

** (gedit:19965): WARNING **: Could not load theme icon gtk-home: Icon 'gtk-home' not present in theme

You could try copying the gtkrc file from /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/ to your home directory as .gtkrc-2.0-kde4 and/or .gtkrc-2.0 as brianL suggested.

I think the error you're receiving just has to do with one missing icon in your icon theme (gtk-home). This shouldn't mess up the whole theme.

Having the same issue here. I prefer the look of QTCurve, and have used it for my widgets and window decorations for years. Kubuntu 11.10, and Gedit refuses to use QTCurve. All other GTK apps, such as Pidgin, Firefox, etc. use QTCurve without problem. It only seems to be Gedit that has the issue.

This sounds like the same problem I ran into and just resolved yesterday The issue is that QtCurve and the current oxygen-gtk do not support gtk 3.0 apps. There is an updated Oxygen-gtk theme that works with gtk 3 apps now (no QtCurve yet as far as I could find).

This is my first post so I cannot post the link here. See post below....
