Hello,
guvcview interface is displayed using the very basic /usr/share/themes/default gtk theme. I would like to know if it is possible and how to display the interface using the current puppy gtk theme.
I tried this:
Code:
GTK2_RC_FILES=/path/to/my/theme/gtkrc guvcview

But this doesn't work Embarassed

Thank you.

Cordialement.

If you have a recent version of guvcview then it will be using GTK 3. The themes are not compatible with gtk 2. You would need to find some gtk 3 themes but be aware that with different versions of gtk 3 the themes are often broke. A mess? Yes!

I remember some one saying that "gtk 2 is the source of all buginess!" (mikeb???) ... I guess he hasn't tried gtk 3 yet ..

I think you'd need to know whether the software supports setting an alternate gtkrc file -some programs have such an option.
