ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

Clean ASCII installation. WM: openbox.

Chromium: OK
Firefox, XFCE terminal: not OK

I installed xfce4-settings, tried this and the other styles: no success.

Any clue?

Re: ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

Did you install desktop-base?  That should give you the default darkpurpy theme which uses Clearlooks-Phenix-DarkPurpy theme that includes an OB theme.  Or you can just choose that theme and not get the darkpurpy grub and login.   Note that since that was captured, the icons were recolored to a nice purpy color also.

OB theme

*Edit*  For this theme to work properly it needs GTK2 and GTK3 and something Xfce specific.   The regular clearlooks theme breaks badly in ASCII.  desktop-base pulls in all the necessaries.

Just installed it, selected the Clearlooks-Phenix-DarkPurpy theme: scroll bars and field borders are back in firefox, scrollbars still faulty in xfce4-terminal.
And still in firefox, xfce4-terminal: a dropdown-menu selected menu item is not highlighted.

Re: ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

I'm not seeing gtk2-engines-xfce and gtk3-engines-xfce in that list.   desktop-base should have brought those in.  That's for jessie. I'll fire up VB later and check what's there in ascii.

Also, depending on your setup you may have to add the theme to /root

Re: ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

I switched off my PC yesterday evening and restarted it this morning: works fine now.

Strange.

Thanks for your assistance.

Re: ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

Put my thinking hat on, then remembered I copied a bunch of themes from a previous Debian (jessie/wheezy) install to Devuan and noticed there were "Theme file changes in Openbox 3.4.".

So emptied the /usr/share/themes/ folder, reinstalled openbox and it works fine now.

In lxappearance's "Widget" tab there's only one item though: Clearlooks-Phenix-DarkPurpy. Is this normal?

EDIT: the Clearlooks-Phenix-DarkPurpy theme is the only having gtk-2.0 and gtk-3.0 subfolders so that might explain it.

Re: ASCII - Some windows no scrollbars, no field borders

Are there other openbox 3.6 compatible themes out there?

Those tested so far from box-look.org and deviantart.com don't fit and
neither of these sources provide version information.
