Talend Studio on Linux: making it look nicer

Doesn’t look like on Mac on Win32, does it?

You can find several howto around, the GTK+ reference here, a GTK+ theme how to.

Create a .gtkrc-eclipse in your home directory, with the following inside:

[sourcecode language=’bash’]
style “eclipse” {
font_name=”Droid Sans 9″
GtkButton::default_border={0,0,0,0}
GtkButton::default_outside_border={0,0,0,0}
GtkButtonBox::child_min_width=0
GtkButtonBox::child_min_heigth=0
GtkButtonBox::child_internal_pad_x=0
GtkButtonBox::child_internal_pad_y=0
GtkMenu::vertical-padding=1
GtkMenuBar::internal_padding=0
GtkMenuItem::horizontal_padding=4
GtkToolbar::internal-padding=0
GtkToolbar::space-size=0
GtkOptionMenu::indicator_size=0
GtkOptionMenu::indicator_spacing=0
GtkPaned::handle_size=4
GtkRange::trough_border=0
GtkRange::stepper_spacing=0
GtkScale::value_spacing=0
GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbar_spacing=0
GtkExpander::expander_size=10
GtkExpander::expander_spacing=0
GtkTreeView::vertical-separator=0
GtkTreeView::horizontal-separator=0
GtkTreeView::expander-size=8
GtkTreeView::fixed-height-mode=TRUE
GtkWidget::focus_padding=0
}
class “GtkWidget” style “eclipse”
[/sourcecode]

Then, export the GTK2_RC_FILES variable. Example:

[sourcecode language=’bash’]export GTK2_RC_FILES=/home/fblaise/.gtkrc-eclipse[/sourcecode]

And launch talend or any eclipse-based program. It should look much better.

You will notice that the palette font size doesn’t change, and remains big… I don’t know why it is not changing with the rest. If you have a clue, please post a comment! Thanks.

    Also, this doesn’t appear to work in gnome 3 (at the time of writing, this was on work’s laptop, running opensuse 11.4 – gnome 2.x).

  2. I am now not sure the place you’re getting
    your information, however god topic. I must spend a while learning much more
    orr understanding more. Thnks forr fantastic info
    I was lkoking for this info for my mission.

  3. Results of the prolactin blood test must be interpreted wigh certain factors in mind.
    If your testosterone levels are below a healthy range, hormone replacemet is
    suggested. It is a metabolic situation linked to insulin challenge and glucose intolerance.

  4. Between men and women, the women have the highest purchasing power when it
    comes to shopping for apparels. Let’s take a look on how you
    can pick lingerie for your special person. If
    you are tired of going to your local store and finding that they have just sold out the lingerie of your size then you can consider
    online shopping You will not have to face this issue while shopping online.
