In fact, I have just tested what you said on a basesystem-minimal.
1) install libgtk+2.0-devel
2) try the most basic gtk windows from "gtk-demo"
It is full of oxygen-gtk as expected, but without font :)
So, it looks like a Requires basic fonts is missing (gnu-free-* do the
3) rpm -e --nodeps oxygen-gtk
(and rpm -e liboxygen-gtk)
try again gtk-demo, it works perfectly fine with simple widgets, which
by the way are very fast.
SO, I am reiterating my statement that oxygen-gtk should *not* be a
Requires :) Why not simply do a Suggests?
I am concerned about this because already on my 4 years old machine, the
oxygen-gtk menu are slightly slower than the basic gtk. So I am pretty
sure people with old machines won't be happy to have nice rounded blue
What do you think?
