Perhaps someone can help me to get rid of this slight red border in the progress-GUI? See the attached screenshot.

Which theme are you using? Is the idea that you want to customize the theme, or that you think there is a problem and theme is showing up wrong? –  8128 Dec 23 '10 at 16:58

That is simply a feature of the theme. You could edit the gtkrc or change the theme. Probably just best for you to change the theme if you are unsure. You can use gedit to edit the theme. It will usually be in /usr/share/themes/themename/gtk-2.0/.

Looking at the theme, the relevant line appears to be line 71:

GtkEntry::progress-border = { 2, 2, 2, 2 }

Try changing these values and see if the border goes away (I haven't installed the theme so I cannot verify as yet).

Another potentially relevant set of lines are the lines from 358 to 361: style "progressbar"

{
xthickness = 1

ythickness = 1

thanks for your effort. change the border shades value to 0 did the trick: style "progressbar" { xthickness = 1 ythickness = 1 engine "murrine" { border_shades = { 0, 0} # draw a gradient on the border. –  NES Dec 23 '10 at 17:34
