Description

Dear Sylpheed developer(s),

recently I tried to use a GTK+ theme on Audacious 3.5-beta1 Win32 (which uses GTK+ 3) by copying the appropriate theme folder from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo?content=140562 to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\audacious-3.5-beta1-win32\share\themes

and then editing:

C:\Program Files (x86)\audacious-3.5-beta1-win32\etc\gtk-3.0\settings.ini

to make it look like this:

[Settings]
gtk-theme-name = Zukitwo
gtk-icon-theme-name = Faenza
gtk-font-name = Segoe UI 9
gtk-auto-mnemonics = 1

This works like a charm and IMHO looks a heck of a lot better than the default Win32 GTK+ theme.

So, then I tried to do the same with Sylpheed 3.4.0rc Win32, by copying the appropriate theme folder from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Zukitwo?content=140562 to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sylpheed\share\themes

and then editing:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sylpheed\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc

to make it look like this:

gtk-theme-name = "Zukitwo"

But it does not work :(.

Tested on Win8.1 x64.

Could you please fix that?

It would be much appreciated.

Regards

Dear Sylpheed developers,

this seems to be fixed with Sylpheed-gtk2.24test-2.

Using some other themes still doesn't seem to work perfect, but at least now other themes can be used (which was not possible earlier).

Regards
