About linux : How-to-Install-gtk2-engines-murrine-locally

Question Detail

I tried installing some xfce4 themes locally onto my office machine but whenever I open any gvim files, it throws the following error

Gtk-WARNING **: : Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",

To resolve this everyone is asking to install using sudo access but I don’t have the permission. Does anyone knows how to install it locally ?

Please advice. Thanks!


  1. I tried downloading the packages from following link.
  2. https://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/dag/redhat/el6/x86_64/gtk-murrine-engine-0.53.1-1.el6.rf.x86_64.html
  3. Unpacked the files using: rpm2cpio to-install.rpm | cpio -idv
  4. Tried adding the following .so path to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

But still faced the same error. Is there anything that needs to be done ?

Question Answer

No answer for now.
