Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: « ubuntulooks »

Each time I launch a graphical application like gedit as a non-root user, I get this error :

(gedit:1376): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “ubuntulooks”

To solve this problem, please install the following Debian package :

root@localhost:~# apt-get install gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks

Try to relaunch your graphical application :

foo@localhost:~$ gedit &

You will  not get the initial error message anymore.

  1. I get this error!

    Package gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    human-theme

    E: Package ‘gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks’ has no installation candidate

    Im on a wild goose chase woo ubuntu is fun

    • For Debian Squeeze, this package is available in the repositories. Unfortunately, it does not help very much installing it to remove all the errors messages mentioned in this post.
