Ubuntu 10.10 forgets desktop theme.

UPDATE: It looks like i'm experiencing this bug where Ubuntu can't do themes on fast computers (e.g. SSD drive and/or i7 CPU).

UPDATE: I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 on a SECOND brand new computer. I logged in for the first time, and themes displayed ok, I then activated the recommended Nvidia driver, rebooted, and the themes don't display, same issue. If I kill "gnome-settings-" then run "sudo gnome-settings-daemon" the themes work again (until I reboot).

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10, and after activating the Nvidia drivers, and Ubuntu seems to have lost the theme, it looks like old school 9.04 or something (but some parts, like the window title/menu bars look new)

Jorge suggested in the comments that: "This isn't a theme issue, you're gnome-system-daemon is likely crashing. Is this persistent across reboots?"

Looking back, I think the problems started when I tried to start using dual monitors. I ran the "NVDIA X Server Settings" applet, and accidentally chose "Separate X screen (requires X restart)" at which point I got different displays on each monitor, but each had their own panel and applications menu etc. I've since switched to "TwinView" which is the one I think I should have chosen originally.

Running gnome-settings-daemon produced the following output:

 alex@alex-pc3:~$ – alex@alex-pc3:~$ gnome-settings-daemon

 ** (gnome-settings-daemon:11554): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.SettingsDaemon 
 ** (gnome-settings-daemon:11554): WARNING **: Could not acquire name

If I run sudo gnome-setttings-daemon, then it seems to work, my panel and windows and icons etc all look modern as per the latest theme. However, after restarting the problem is back, so I guess I can manually run gnome-settings-daemon.

I get this output from gnome-settings-daemon:

alex@alex-pc3:~$ sudo gnome-settings-daemon
alex@alex-pc3:~$ 
** (gnome-settings-daemon:1978): WARNING **: Grab failed for some keys, another application may already have access the them.

** (gnome-settings-daemon:1978): WARNING **: Clipboard manager is already running.
Unable to find a synaptics device.

I rebooted again, I typed "ps - A | grep settings" and found one process running called "gnome-settings-", so it looks like gnome-settings-daemon is running, but not working?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @Alex How did you install it? Did you upgrade or use an existing /home? – Isaiah Nov 4 '10 at 19:54
  • 1
    Completely fresh install on brand new hard drive (brand new computer). The panel looked fine before the reboot for the Nvidia drives. – Alex Black Nov 4 '10 at 19:54
  • I'm using dual monitors, "Twinview" in nvidia-settings – Alex Black Nov 4 '10 at 19:55
  • Is it only the panel or are all the programs using the default gnome theme?. Please open Nautilus and check. – Javier Rivera Nov 4 '10 at 20:04
  • hmm, it looks like the menubars of windows are fine, but the rest of the window is not. I'll post a screenshot. – Alex Black Nov 4 '10 at 20:07
