having trouble with gtk1.2 apps

Hi, i just installed debian from scratch with just the packages i need, kde 3.2 , x windows, multimedia apps, etc.

My problem is that certain apps depending on gtk 1.2 (the only pattern i see) looks beyond horrible, the fonts of the controls are huge, same for the size of the controls, they look completly out of proportion, some of these apps are:

xmms : file , list selection menu.

linneighborhood : the most uglier of all

komodo ide 3.0 : all of it looks ugly, relies heavily in gtk

I have no problem with the 90% of apps depending on gnome, ethereal , synaptic all them looks very very good.

But the mystery ( for me) is that all those apps looks realy nice in knoppix !!! and i have the same gtk libraries as knoppix.

I realy dont care about how those apps look, with the exception of komodo wich is the "only" ide for python ( wich has at least callback tip , for class members) , i realy have to use this ide wich looks discustinly awfull.

What does knoppix and other distros have or doesnt have to make these kind of apps looks nice?

I am desperate =(
