gtk-window-decorator question
 
I'm using Compiz with gtk-window-decorator.

Is there a way to change gtk-window-decorator's theme?

And I don't use GNOME. I just use gtk-window-decorator because I like it better than Emerald.

gnome-art package.

You don't understand.

The problem is NOT that it don't know where to get themes.

The problem is how do I use them?

Remember, I don't have GNOME, that means no Settings->Appearance.

(Actually, I do have GNOME installed, I just don't use it. The problem is that when I launch its appearance settings thing, it ruins my GTK+ theme (ClearlooksClassic) and icons (Tango), and I have to restart X. Why is that?)

I figured it out:

Code:

gtk-window-decorator --metacity-theme theme-name --replace

Perfect! This was the answer I needed.
Also keep in mind to put quotes around the theme-name if the name in question has spaces in it.
Example:

Code:

gtk-window-decorator --metacity-theme "Cobra OSX" --replace
Themes themselves can be placed in the .themes folder
In my case the theme in question was stored under /home/sysghost/.themes/Cobra OSX
