GTK apps running as other users (e.g. root) do not use user-installed themes

Bug #201534 reported by Alexander Jones on 2008-03-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gtk+2.0 (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Install a theme into ~/.themes
Activate the theme
Run a GTK app as another user, e.g. "sudo gedit"

The app will use the default, in-built GTK styling if the theme's name does not resolve to another theme on the system.
