Yes, of course GNOME has theme options in the control center.

However, SuSE tried to make its GNOME desktop look like the KDE one, they've changed some icons, fonts, and their default sizes. But I think they hardcoded those modifications which made Theme control panel useless.

I guess the situation is the opposite of Redhat here. Fedora is known to include "not so good" default modifications for KDE, and SuSE has similar approach on GNOME.

(Btw, the last version I tried was 10.0)

Suse hasn't harcoded any gnome settings. They offer exactly the same options as any distribution with gnome. It's just the control panel that's different.

I did not file a bug myself back then. However I could find two items related to my experience:

Here GNOME menu items are described to be too large. This was the same on my system, and the comments say it was an intentional SuSE patch.

This one tells that there are many KDE icons on a GNOME only install. Yes my icon theme was also KDE'ish and could not change it.


This third one is not a bug, but explains things for me. It tells that GTK uses QT theme engine, which effectively makes it look like KDE.

Actually I've checked latest screenshots after these comments, and the GNOME desktop look a lot like a regular one now. I'll give it another chance, but I guess I should stick with Fedora a little bit more if I need a GNOME based distribution.
