Gimp 2.8 GTK messed up
Gimp 2.8s GTK theme is messed up (look at attached screenshot). Before I upgraded to 2.8 I had 2.6 and the theme was the way it was supposed to be.
How do I fix this?

OS: Windows 7 64bit

RE: Gimp 2.8 GTK messed up
Hey, same problem here. Windows 7 64-bit. Stuff disappears and shows up where its not supposed to. especially with transparent elements. (screenshot) Its just ugly as all hell, too. I'd rather not have it look like i'm using windows 95. That gimpthemes 1.0 program doesn't work, either.

the black stuff either isn't supposed to be there or supposed to not be cut off at irregular parts. also there appears to be part of a button missing next to the font size thing.

Hey,

I think I've managed to sort it, if you copy the "MS-Windows" folder from "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\themes" to "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes" them move the content out so rather than it being "MS-Windows\gtk-2.0\[then the file called gtkrc]" its just, "MS-Windows\[then the file]".

Then open Gimp and go Edit>Preferences>Theme select "MS-Windows" and press "Ok", then you can press "Reload Current Theme", and that should sort it.

Hope this helps,

Ps. Not sure why it doesn't work, its fine on my home PC but my work machine had this bug.

It works! Thanks Smile. Except the "Reload Current Theme" button didn't do anything for me. I had to restart Gimp and then it worked.
