pavro knows that for theming it should require gnome-settings-daemon listed. He's been involved in conversations
on GitHub.

If I run (from terminal)
gnome-settings-daemon

It solved the themeing issue. How do I get it to load automatically..? (put in startups..?..)

In Mate you can open startup applications setting and just add it.
I don't know about xfce and I think you are using xfce... Am I right?

GNOME-SETTINGS-DAEMON

gnome-settings-daemon — GNOME settings daemon

gnome-settings-daemon [OPTION...]

Description

gnome-settings-daemon provides many session-wide services and functions that require a long-running process. Among the services implemented by gnome-settings-daemon are an XSettings manager, which provides theming, font and other settings to GTK+ applications, and a clipboard manager, which preserves clipboard contents when an application exits. Many user interface elements of gnome-shell and gnome-control-center rely on gnome-settings-daemon for their functionality.

The internal architecture of gnome-settings-daemon consists of a number of plugins, which provide functionality such as printer notifications, software update monitoring, background changing, etc. For debugging purposes, these plugins can be individually disabled by changing the gsettings key org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.plugin-name.active, where plugin-name is the name of the plugin. To see a list of all plugins, use the command gsettings list-children org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins

gnome-settings-daemon takes the name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon on the session bus to ensure that only one instance is running. Some plugins export objects under this name to make their functionality available to other applications. The interfaces of these objects should generally be considered private and unstable.

gnome-settings-daemon is a required component of the GNOME desktop, i.e. it is listed in the RequiredComponents field of /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome.session. It is started in the initialization phase of the session, and gnome-session will restart it if it crashes.

Options

-h, --help

Prints a short help text and exits.

--debug

Enables debugging code.

--timed-exit

Exits after a timeout (30 seconds) for debugging.

Files

/usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome.session

GNOME session definition file where gnome-settings-daemon is listed as a required component.

/etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-settings-daemon.desktop

Autostart file for gnome-settings-daemon, where its autostart phase is set.

Thanks for the info and links 'way12go' we were posting at the same time... :)


.........................
EDIT

Deleted info on making an autostart for gnome-settings-daemon.  The issue has been fixed in an upgrade to Budgie
(budgie-desktop to 8-20150131).

Is this relevant?

Yes, its along those lines.  We need an autostart for gnome-settings-daemon... :)

Perhaps this would be of interest...

Should be fixed without us having to add our own autostart.... :)

Just pushed a fix to git which will now include /usr/share/gnome/autostart as an "xdg directory",
meaning GNOME autostarts work, and gnome-settings-daemon on Debian will work

I will update budgie debs tonight to be included gnome-settings-daemon startup.

Edit
gnome-settings-daemon provides its desktop file in /usr/share/gnome/autostart/ already.
If it doesn't work, it should be copied to /etc/xdg/autostart/

 ;D Wow, this DE is awesome, beautiful and great performance. It might look like Gnome Shell but it runs about a million times better.
