Error with GTK2.0: "clearlooks" unsupported?

Hi, I have a problem running Java based applications:

When i start a program, lets say limewire, i get this error:

Starting LimeWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
OOPS, you don't seem to have a valid JRE. LimeWire works best with Sun JRE available at
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in  /usr/lib/  hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from
Java exec found in  /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/
Suitable java version found  [/usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java = 1.5.0_04]
Configuring environment...
Loading LimeWire:
/usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:49: Engine "clearlooks" is unsupported, ignoring
How to get rid of these problems, how should i modify my .bashrc or .bash_profile?

And how to get rid of the last problem, Limewire without clearlooks looks horrible!

this is normal... java gtk look and feel(or theme if you prefer) doesn't not support all gtk engines. You can select limewire theme from limewire theme preferences.

mhh, thanks, Limewire is looking normal now.

But i remember limewire looking good WITH the GTK them, i think that was prior to my jre1.5.0-04 installation, after that that problem started to occur.

Anyways, thank for helping!
