Hi. I'm new to kubuntu.
I realy like this OS. But in system settings i try to install new theme.
But i don't know i download GTK2 Themes or GTK3 Themes.
What is different between them?

It seems that some GTK3 themes show up, but only the ones that include a gtk-2.0 directory, so essentially GTK2 themes that happen to include a GTK3 theme. lxappearance also has no obvious facility for setting separate GTK2 and GTK3 themes, so any GTK3 theme that doesn't include a GTK2 theme is pretty
Using XFCE/XUbuntu. Now that (some) applications have been ported from GTk2 to Gtk3, theming is broken beause Gtk3 apps are apparently unable to apply Gtk2 themes (and maybe engines too, haven't figured out yet), so I would like to know what does a Gtk2 -> Gtk3 port involve, so I can maybe revert it and bring for example Rhythmbox, Gedit, Abiword etc etc etc...
I am really loving Gnome3. I know there are themes that include both GTK2 and GTK3 versions but i do really like the default Adwaita theme. Anyone know when programmes are likely to move on to GTK3? Also what about Firefox and Libreoffice integrating? I know they aren't GTK but with GTK2 they did fit in really well. Also really loving the mock ups of Gnome over the last while.
Hi, I installed a bunch of gnome 3 themes in Fedora 17 via yum, but they aren't showing anywhere when I start gnome-tweak-tool.
Why is this broken?
these are the themes:
yum install zukitwo-gtk3-theme adwaita-gtk3-theme albatross-gtk3-theme bluebird-gtk3-theme egtk-gtk3-theme greybird-gtk3-theme light-gtk3-theme zukini-gtk3-theme zukiwi-gtk3-theme
^I would counter a "qualified yes" - as long as your definition of "stable" is not "newbie friendly". As I remember, the initial version of wheezy/waldorf lxappearance did not support GTK3. If you changed your theme - you were required to live with the default, manually create a GTK3 configuration, or compile newer sources. None of which are newbie-f
GTK themes in Gnome 3 follow a new syntax that is different from GTK2. The new CSS syntax in GTK3 makes it easier to make themes. Though it is easy to understand the CSS syntax than the old gtkrc syntax, it is not enough to know just CSS. GTK themes are more than that. A good start can be this tutorial and specifically this.
I will try to explain in brief what I have learnt about GTK3 theming.
