I want to reverse the button order in GTK dialog boxes. Currently the buttons are Cancel-OK, as read left to right. I want OK-Cancel as read left to right.
In /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc I have gtk-alternative-button-order=1
. Permissions are 644. The GTK2_RC_FILES environment variable is set to:
I tried $HOME/.config/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 with the same option.
I tried setting the option to true and True. I tried zero (false).
GIMP abides by the option. Audacity, LSHW, MP3Splt, WireShark, and Firefox do not.
Doesn't matter whether I am in KDE or Xfce.
I've tried userChrome.css tricks for Firefox but they all seem obsolete now and do not work.
Seems all GTK apps but GIMP ignore this option. I'm inclined to think this option is obsolete. Is there another option or a different way? Is another option overriding this option?
I've searched the web until my eyes were bleary.
Perhaps this is futile? I found this snippet
. . . Gtk apps need to be coded to accept an alternative button order - GIMP 2.4 has, GIMP 2.2 hasn't. Firefox is a bit more tricky. . . .
This would imply that each GTK app has to look for the gtk-alternative-button-order option?
I recall reading that Firefox was supposed to adapt the button order to each desktop. I'll settle for reversing the buttons in Firefox 3.0x (Slackware 12.2). . . .
