Gtk theme for greeter

Asked by Andrei Voropaev on 2013-12-25

I can't force GTK theme for the greeter. Long time ago (about a year, may be more) the drop down list with user names and buttons were roundish as they are in Clearlooks theme. But now they are crude blocks as in default GTK theme. I have
theme-name=Clearlooks in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf but this does not change anything.

Maybe there's something else that I have to adjust?

Are you using the GTK2 or GTK3 version of the lightdm-gtk-greeter? The default is now GTK3, so you'll want to use the Adwaita theme most likely, as Clearlooks does not have a GTK3 theme.

Thank you. That did the trick. I mean switching to Adwaita.

I've checked, on Gentoo the package is built against gtk3.
