Hello, I am using spacefm as my file manager. I want to change the file icons, so I added this line
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango"
in the .gtkrc-2.0, but it changes nothing, even the "gtk-icon-theme-name" doesn't be recognized, (under vim, the color is white, not the color (brown in my case) like others)
Could someone tell me how to fix it?

Which version of spacefm are you using?
In portage 0.9.0 and 0.9.1 is set to build with gtk3 by default for some reason (no idea why, gtk3 version is buggy). So you need to set the icon theme for gtk3.
If you are using the 0.8.7 that still uses gtk2 then, the method you use works for me.

I suggest:
1. Check which version of spacefm you are using.
2. Set the gtk3 'stuff' if you use 0.9.x from portage.
3. Check that "Tango" is the exact name to be used from /usr/share/icons

For example my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 contains:
gtk-icon-theme-name="Faenza-Dark"

and (for gtk3) my ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini contains:
gtk-icon-theme-name=Faenza-Dark

Exactly the same, just missing the "".

well, yes, i have recently updated to spacefm-0.9.0, and the tag appearance is really ugly, so that's why i wan't to change the theme. I will try gtk-3.0.

I didn't try gtk-3.0 but degraded spacefm to 0.8.7. and it works too. Thanks.
