I downloaded the Aurora themes and put them in the right folder (Windows), but when I use the theme selector that came with gtk+, it doesn't use the theme right, as in the scroll bar doesn't look like its supposed to and the same with the buttons and tabs. I had a program earlier that would let you preview the GTK+ theme before using it but I can't seem to find it anymore. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and why isn't the theme working right?

You'd need the Aurora engine, which afaik isn't shipped with the windows gtk.

(there are many engines for gtk, and not all are available on windows)

according to its GNOME-Look page ( http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show. ... tent=56438 ), you need to install the engine, then the rc files:
Quote:
To install the theme engine extract it to somewhere convenient and in that directory,
run: "./configure --prefix=/usr" then "make"
For animation support add "-enable-animation" when running "./configure"
Then as a root user "make install".

Then install the gtkrc themes by extracting them to your ~/.themes directory (3 themes in total).

You have the gtkrc but not the engine to use them. So... yes, it doesn't work properly!

Oh... Well I had the themes work perfectly before I had to reinstall Windows. And I can't do the ./configure way because that is for linux.

as long as you're not on a 64 bit version of windows, you should be able to use MSYS ( http://mingw.org/msys/ ) to do ./configure,
whether or not it works and installs may be another story, but you'll at least be able to give it a shot

Oh well I'm really just looking for the theme problem using gtkrc. How do I use MSYS anyway?

Depending on what you want, you could go for the 4 year old 1.0.10 package, or the current technology preview one.
If you go for the technology preview, I believe that you want:
MSYS-1.0.11-20071204.tar.bz2
then after you unpack it, there should be an msys.bat which will launch it.
This may also be of use:

I think I just found the program you were talking about.
http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/home/ind ... /Gtk2Prefs
it installs more engines, so aurora should work with this
