           Summary: Theme clash when gnome and KDE installed
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-themes
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: silkworm0 at gmail.com
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

Ok, here's what I did:

1. Install Breezy i386 as standard w/ gnome desktop
2. "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install KDE
3. Started a KDE session
4. started KDE system settings tool, selected appearance, GTK+ apps
5. Requested that KDE use a fixed theme (clearlooks-clarity, installed in gnome
from download) for all GTK apps.

Since then, the gnome theme tool is unable to update the control theme that I
use properly - everything looks like clearlooks-clarity (but with the ocasional
colour change). If I return to KDE and select 'use my KDE theme in GTK
applications', then back in gnome everything looks KDE-ified.

I can work-around to change the gnome theme properly by starting KDE and asking
it to use a certain theme for all GTK apps, and this setting is persisited
across to the gnome session. However, the conrol section of gnome theme manager
is efectively useless.

Keep up the good work.
