Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

gtk theme still sucks

Member since:

Nobody seems to have fixed the fisher-price sized widgets (where the text seems to be drowning in the emptiness)

Or the massively oversized menu and toolbars that are just empty/wasted space.

Am being weird here, or does nobody have a problem with utterly wasted space (that hinders more than helps) ?

It was a serious issue for me with gtk2 made many times worse with gtk3
