After a fresh install of Linux Mint 12 from the DVD, themes are not working properly in Mate. The specific error is:
"This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine 'murrine' is not installed"
I get the same error for different themes / theme engines.
Per glebihan's help in the Linux Mint Help IRC, I followed the instructions at: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1901
Tried restarting the computer afterwards but the issue persists. We verified that the Linux Mint romeo repository source is enabled and that the murrine-themes and gtk2-engines-murrine packages are installed.
The system is a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p with Linux Mint 12 64-bit.
$ mate-about --version
same problem here, are there any ways to fix it?
Sorry, I reverted to Mint 11 so I can't give any more information. Hopefully pedroteixeira can help.
@JDougherty no problem
@pedroteixeira update to version 2011.12.12
I have the same problem on a Sony Vaio VPCEH, Linux Mint 12 64-bit.
I have entered the version command and it is:
MATE Desktop Environment 2011.11.03
I see your advice is to update to version 2011.12.12 but the question is how could I perform this. In Synaptic I have all the packages at the latest version. Should I add a different repository for MATE?
Many thanks in advance and keep up the good MATE work, it's great to be able to use Gnome the old way.
-- edit: I have already added the Romeo unstable repository but after refresh it doesn't show any updates available. I also have gtk2-engines-murrine.
It worked, many thanks!
