Interface old theme

Post by David0325 » Tue May 09, 2017 6:44 am

Ubuntu 16
UMS 6.5
Java 1.7

There is little problem with UMS user interface when I open UMS. User interface is ugly with an old style theme (as windows 95).
How can I get the user interface of UMS to use the GTK theme in Linux?

I already did the following tricks with no success :

I doubt it will make a difference, but you could try using Java 8 and see if another style is selected. When I run UMS on Linux VMs, it has some resemblence to the Linux desktop although you can definitly see that it's not "native". It looks nothing like Windows 95 though:

Edit: Looking quickly in the code, "GTK look and feel" is what's applied for Linux by default. If it fails, it's switched to something called MetalLookAndFeel, which is pretty terrible:

Check your log for "Error loading GTK look and feel" or post debug files like explained in red above.

Thanks, I now understand what it's happened, GTKlookAndFeel failed and switched to MetalLookAndFeel that is the theme I have.
I will investigate further and show here the log.
