Debian Sarge 3.01 GUI Problem.

Hello, I just installed Debian Sarge and I am very new to it, just coming from Mandrake.

Now, my problem is this:

Everything works fine. Hell, even X is just fine.. except.. I'm using fluxbox.. and themes seem rather.. big. The GUI's for everything.. like the URL bar it's huge! And the buttons are bigger then normal, and same with EVERY other GUI program... gkrellm, gtk-gnutella.. all bigger then normal on a resolution of 1024x768.. any help?

Just the icons, or is the text also larger (i.e. are you sure that you're resolution is 1024x768 ?). Check /var/log/X*.log.

Have you run an apt-get update, apt-get upgrade ?
