GTK themes in Debian 10 not displayed correctly

Hi! Im configuring a system with Debian 10 and Openbox. I dont know why but the GTK theme I used to config in BunsenLabs Helium (Arc theme) dont show properly. Some font colors and layouts are missing and buttons disposition are too close to borders. This problem happens with Arc and other themes, all of them installed from official Debian repository. May be the problem is GTK version (3.22.11 in Helium and 3.24.5 in Debian 10), but this means all old themes are incompatible?

Here is a sample, up in Bunsen and down in Debian 10:

^ Try replacing the version of Arc you have with the Debian package...

https://packages.debian.org/buster/arc-theme

The missing folder icon in the title bar is configured in Openbox (obconf>Appearance>Window icon: add the letter N to the beginning.)

https://packages.debian.org/buster/obconf

Thanks for your answer hhh, but installing arc theme from this location didnt the work.

Really I dont care about the title bar icon, but the icon in the window message i dont know why is not showing.

Re: GTK themes in Debian 10 not displayed correctly

Confirmed using the arc-theme package I linked and Papirus icons on my Buster desktop...

Theme changes, I guess. That's how the dialog looks now, it would seem.

More specifically, GTK3 changes, I guess. GNOME has been screwing up royally with GTK3 for a long time now. Nearly every new version broke existing themes for a long stretch there. I don't know what their recent dev work has been like. I haven't touched GNOME shell in a year.

Same in BL-Lithium theme using the dev iso:
https://freeimage.host/i/screenshot-202 … -15.JnE4j4

The problem dont ocurrs in all windows. For example LXAppearance or VLC looks ok, others like Geany or Thunar are these padding problems.

I dont know if is a GTK change becouse the layout is inconsistent. For example:
https://freeimage.host/i/screenshot-202 … -43.JnMFWl
(left Geany Preference buttons and right LXAppearance buttons)

Re: GTK themes in Debian 10 not displayed correctly

Looks like a typical mismatch between GTK2 and GTK3 theming.

Unfortunately theme developers are less and less interested in making this consistent - more or less ignoring GTK2 because they think it just isn't hip anymore and gimp should drop it already and nobody uses LXDE anyhow. Short-lived. Sad.
