fbpanel looks strange (quite ugly) :/

I'm new to this board, and also quite new to GNU/Linux, so please be patient.

After i decided to switch from Ubuntu to Arch, I installed my preferred programs (openbox, rox, aterm, fbpanel, ...).
Everything went well, except fbpanel: It looks just ugly

I tried everything, I installed it via pacman, compiled several different versions from source, installed various GTK2+-themes (clearlooks, etc.), edited the config-file, ...

Neither Google (yes, also nor the search-function won't find anything useful...

Thats what it looks like now:


Has anybody got an idea, how to make it look like this:


or even like this :


tia, omerta.

/add: I can't post URLs to other sites until i made at least 3 posts, so please remove the # out of the URLs.

You need to set a GTK theme, just installing one won't work. Arch has gtk-chtheme available in [community], try that.
