The interface has became UGLY

Hi all!

I don't know what part of the Linux my problem is related to, but it is more about GUI, I believe. Without any obvious reason all windows started to look this style:

I'd like to return my 'classic' look of CrunchBang which was like that:

Do you have an idea what happen and how to fix it?

The distro:

CrunchBang waldorf
Linux 3.2.0-4-486 #1 Debian 3.2.96-2 i686 GNU/Linux

Thanks in advance.

Re: The interface has became UGLY

Have you tried using lxappearance to change the themes?

Can we please see the output of:

cat ~/{.gtkrc-2.0,.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini}

Re: The interface has became UGLY

No, I never changed the default settings. The output is below.

cat ~/{.gtkrc-2.0,.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini}
# DO NOT EDIT! This file will be overwritten by LXAppearance.
# Any customization should be done in ~/.gtkrc-2.0.mine instead.

The date for these files is May 2015, when, probably, this distro was installed.

Re: The interface has became UGLY

OK, yes, they look normal.

The usual cause for a problem like this would be an attempted upgrade to another Debian release or mixed sources, to investigate this further we need to see the output of:

apt-cache policy

I would also note that #! Waldorf is based on Debian wheezy which is now oldoldstable and completely unsupported.

As such, I strongly recommend that you re-install with a distribution based on a supported release.

We should hopefully have a new release out soon based on Debian 9 (stretch) and there are several other #!-like distributions available.

Re: The interface has became UGLY

i suspect an upgrade has removed the crunchbang themes?
also the openbox theme has reverted to default.

^ This or the themes are no longer compatible with current theme engines.

This might be the case. Before I encountered the GUI problem I was struggling to upgrade nginx from version 1.6.? (which was the latest for my distro) to a newer one, and finally, to my surprise, "succeeded" to get the newest 1.13.4, adding two lines to the /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://nginx.org/packages/mainline/debian/ wheezy nginx
deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/mainline/debian/ wheezy nginx

Meanwhile, the output:

Pinned packages:

Yes, I understand that the distribution I use is outdated, but I just couldn't afford any delay in my daily work (still can't figure out if I can upgrade to the stable distro from bunsenlabs without complete reinstall of all the tools I use). Will give it a try in January.

Re: The interface has became UGLY

^ +1

@dmitrymyadzelets, those sources have probably caused the problem you are experiencing and it can be a very tricky thing to fix, unfortunately.

I think you should take this opportunity back up all of your important files and look at migrating to a supported operating system.
