fluxbox colors


Does anybody know how to set colors in fluxbox? I mean if I run a non-kde application like code::blocks in fluxbox it just loads everything in standard gray/white. The only colors I can change are the editor colors. If I open code::blocks in KDE it loads KDE's colors, whatever I picked in system-settings.

If I open something like Dolphin in fluxbox it still loads KDE's colors but code::blocks won't. So is there any way to set default colors in fluxbox or just make it so it loads KDE's colors?

I think maybe it's because my codeblocks uses GTK and KDE is Qt based? So maybe I have to change GTK colors somewhere?

have you tried something like gtk-chtheme or gtk-theme-switch. Themes are called like gtk2-engines-*(xfce or smooth or nodoka...) at least its that way at debian.

under kde systemsettings colours option is a choice to apply the colours on non-kde apps, but i dont know if it does what youre looking for.

Yeah, gtk-chtheme, works like a charm.

Wow, that's pretty slick, too. You can grab more themes from here:
http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2
and just stick them in /usr/share/themes
