Could we get some feedback - won't do it, too unstable , we are working hard on it , etc? Thanks

I have the same bug installing nightly build (September 27, 2011). Cheese and Synaptic preferences dialog box, and others. It looks like this in my install, too.

As a temporary workaround, I've used the instructions on the page below to get pretty GTK3 applications:

Dear Kubuntu Developers

the first stable oxygen-gtk3 package is released. Is it possible to get it into Oneiric ? At least through the Backport's PPA ?

For everyone who wants oxygen-gtk3 in Kubuntu 11.10, it's now in the Backports PPA, thanks to Philip.

To get it to work you need to have the PPA and then:

1. sudo apt-get install gtk3-engines-oxygen
2. Go to /home/USER/.config/
3. Create a folder "gtk-3.0" (without "")
4. Cd created gtk-3.0 folder and create a file: "settings.ini" (without "")
5. Open the file and paste the 2 lines:

gtk-theme-name = oxygen-gtk

6. Open a gtk3 app, it should now look as an oxygen app.

Thanks, TheGhost, it works.

sh code:

sudo apt-get install gtk3-engines-oxygen
mkdir ~/.config/gtk-3.0
echo -e "[Settings]\ngtk-theme-name = oxygen-gtk" > ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
