I am running Arch Linux with XFCE. GTK2 apps, like Thunar, look nice:

looks good!

On the other hand, GTK3 apps, like Rhythmbox, look pretty messed up.


I get the same results with both the XFCE theme and the naos theme (with the gtk3 port). Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Maybe your themes just are incompatible with GTK 3.6? I've heard complaints about GTK 3 breaking theme compatibility between minor releases. –  grawity Nov 11 '12 at 22:42
Seems likely. I know Gnome Shell 3.6 caused some ugly stuff to happen. –  tesselode Nov 11 '12 at 22:54
