Well, here you are confused by urpmi behavior.

We don't have "pixmap" package. In your case urpmi tries to install "R-pixmap" which is the only package that contains "pixmap" in its name.

And if you want to fix " Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap"," then you need "libgtk-modules2.0", not pixmap ;)

The thing is that if urpmi doesn't find exact package name but finds only one package which contains this name then this package is chosen to be installed.

This can be easily checked - if you launch "urpmq pixmap" in console, you'll get only one result - R-pixmap". Or simply use rpmdrake - it won't confuse you in this way.
