GIMP Linux GTK issue

rich2005
I am using GIMP 2.8.20 on Linux. I have installed several different themes.
However, when I switch to said themes, parts of the UI are still this white
color and some elements of the program just plain break

Anybody either know a fix or a workaround to this?

I know GIMP uses GTK+2.0, I am running GTK+3.0 and GTK+2.0. I do not know why
this is still happening even with GTK+2.0 installed

Can you get a screenshot of the dialog Edit --> Preferences --> Theme?

You probably have an older theme originally made for Windows. Gimp themes are
not always interchangeable Win / Linux.

If you want a Dark Theme for Gimp 2.8.20 try the ones here:
https://github.com/draekko/gimp-cc-themes There are screenshots on the web page.

Just tried the very dark in Kubuntu 16.04 / Gimp 2.8.20 and it works ok. Some
parts will always be light - brush dialogue background for example.

I actually found a fix for this, Since I am using Arch Linux, I had to install a
program called kgtk that allows me to integrate GTK2 into GTK3. It works just
fine now
