Hello

I'm just wondering how GTK themes could be applied on GTK-Apps (firefox, evolution, ...) in other environments then Gnome?
For instance in openbox or FVWM or whatever...

I've tried the tool "switch2" (from gtk-theme-switch package) but it doesn't seem to work.
So, is there no way to avoid this ugly windows95-like default GTK theme?

How exactly does one use it... i.e. do you have to run something each time you start X or do you just run it once and it somehow sets the default gtk theme for openbox?

Also if you want to change other gtk settings like font size and stuff edit your ~/.gtkrc-2.0

Actually, those can be changed using gtk-chtheme's frontend as well.
