Here's one I filed 5 years ago:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gksu/+bug/24280

Short version: any theme installed by the user (to ~/.themes) will not be picked up when running admin apps (because they're run as root and thus look in /root/.themes, but it's a UX issue all the same).




Thanks for this idea - this was 3rd in the list at the specified time. It looks like it's possible we will get to this one - but it seems like it is somewhat tricky (since it's been around for ~5 years). Any devs out there familiar with this part of the system who might be able to contribute a fix / idea (given budget!)?


An interesting bug. It could be blamed on any number of pieces along the way, and it can be fixed in any number of ways as well.
