Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-themes-ubuntu

I've updated package "gnome-themes-ubuntu" to version 0.4, and now I see this when I'm trying to use custom theme preferences (see screenshot for details).

Additional info:
1) Release of Ubuntu I'm using - Description: Ubuntu karmic (development branch)
Release: 9.10
2) Version of package I'm using - gnome-themes-ubuntu:
  Установлен: 0.4
  Кандидат: 0.4
  Таблица версий:
 *** 0.4 0
        500 karmic/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
3) What I expected to happen - normal, non-corrupted thumbnails.
4) What happened instead - thumbnails are corrupted.

@ Dilmo - Could you take a look at this? I recently updated New Wave to 0.8.1 in gnome-themes-ubuntu 0.4 in Karmic. I just went back and diffed the files in your tarball and the ubuntu package, and they are indeed the same. Is this happening with local installs using your tarball as well?

I'm on a Jaunty box right now, and I just backported the deb for myself. It's happening on Jaunty as well. So it seems like the problem must be in New Wave (or the package), not a bug in Karmic's gnome-appearance-properties.

@ Ruslan - Thanks for the bug report! We'll try to get to the bottom of this.

That's really strange. Unfortunately I'm in summer break now and I don't have Ubuntu pc near me. Sorry I can't test. It worked with me before. But I have an idea if you are willing to edit some lines of the gtkrc file. The style to search for is :
'style "newwave-frame"'

it is empty in this release but I think it should not be. You should either not apply it by:

class "GtkFrame" style "newwave-frame"
widget_class "*.<GtkFrame>.*" style "newwave-frame"

or use null image for frame background like this:

style "newwave-frame"
  engine "pixmap"

  function = SHADOW
                file = "Images/Others/null.png"
                border = {1, 1, 1, 1}
  stretch = TRUE

or try this out instead of the provided style for window:

style "newwave-window"
        bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "Images/Others/null.png"

@ Dilomo

The above didn't work when I tried it locally. Have you gotten a chance to look at it? I notice that you set a Karmic Polish milestone for the theme project. We just left Beta Freeze so we have a short window before we go into the Final Freeze to get another upload in. Are there any other changes you'd like to see in Karmic?

Sorry for the late reply but things on my side has gotten a bit messy and I don't know when I will have Internet access for longer periods of time. When I have something done I'll write here.
