Running GNOME apps in Xfce; not detecting GTK+ theme

08-14  Source: Network gathering  Views:0 

I primarily use Xfce4 as my desktop environment, but with some GNOME apps such as file-roller and gedit. It appears that GNOME apps no longer detect the current GTK+ theme while using Xfce. They just use the horrible, blocky default theme. This seems to have started after an update about a month ago, and reinstalling the system didn't fix it. Has anyone else had this problem? Any help is appreciated.

I had the same problem. Searching the forums, the solution for me was to :
pacman -S gnome-themes-standard
And then a symbolic link to gtk3 theme :
ln -s /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-3.0 ~/.config/
This way the new gedit or fileroller use the Adwaita theme while normal Xfce programs use the one I set in Appearance settings.
Hope this helps you too.
Hi,my friend, You are right! Thank you very much!!!
