Well, it should work, and I'm working on Camaelon.

Which version did you use ? the one from Etoile's cvs, or the one
from the svn ? We recently moved to svn, so the cvs version is

Secondly, you need a recent version of the GNUstep gui libraries
-- with the svn version of Camaelon, you possibly need the GNUstep
cvs version actually.

Lastly, did you install a theme ? And which one ? because at the moment
only Nesedah is working (Nesedah.theme.tgz on,
SimpleUI.theme.tgz is a bit outdated, while I use Nesedah to test things so
it's sure to be up to date.

Considering the general state of theming in GNUstep, well, it works
through Camaelon,
and I'm also working on integrating directly on gnustep the parts of
Camaelon that
modify AppKit widgets' drawing, so it will be even easier to create a
theme engine
(other than using Camaelon, say, if you want a theme engine for
GNUstep/Windows that
will use the Win32 theme api in order to have a proper integration..
or if you want a "programmed" theme)
