gnome-terminal ignores gtk theme

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I run oneiric with fluxbox as the window manager, and gnome-terminal appears to disregard gtk theme. The theme support does work in other gtk applications (for example, in gthumb and in firefox), but changing the theme makes no difference for gnome-terminal. I have oneiric, and I use lxappearance to change the theme. Am I wrong in assuming that gnome-terminal is a gtk application? Or is the problem elsewhere? Note that the checkbox "Use colours from system theme" in gnome-terminal configuration does not solve the problem, nor it is supposed to, since I am interested in the look and size of t (HowTos)
