RE: All widget are too fat - theming not working properly

I have noticed a long time that the default(and majority of other themes) theming is just fat for Gtk+. Luckily the past year some nice themes have appeared on They usually have the keyword "compact" in their name. Do a search on gnome-look and you'll find them. Study them to see if they have solved your problems.
