Fluxbox fonts


I actually solved my first question by myself ,but I do have another one. How do I get downloaded fonts(artwiz) to work in Fluxbox? And also how do I change the mouse?

edit: Oh, and how do I make this message go away?

Code:
GTK+ icon theme is not properly set

This usually means you don't have an XSETTINGS manager running.  Desktop environment like GNOME or XFCE automatically execute their XSETTING managers like gnome-settings-daemon or xfce-mcs-manager.

If you don't use these desktop environments, you have two choices:
1. run an XSETTINGS manager, or
2. simply specify an icon theme in ~/.gtkrc-2.0.
For example to use the Tango icon theme add a line:
gtk-icon-theme-name="Tango" in your ~/.gtkrc-2.0. (create it if no such file)

NOTICE: The icon theme you choose should be compatible with GNOME, or the file icons cannot be displayed correctly.  Due to the differences in icon naming of GNOME and KDE, KDE themes cannot be used.  Currently there is no standard for this, but it will be solved by freedesktop.org in the future.

What distro?
Just like it says create the file in your home dir;
Code:
<-- first see what themes icon themes are installed
cd /usr/share/themes
ls
<-- lets say Tango is
cd ~
touch .gtkrc-2.0
nano -w .gtkrc-2.0
<--put gtk-icon-theme-name="Tango" 
<-- ctrl o to save
<-- ctrl x to exit
here is a sample;

for the fonts do you have artwiz in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Code:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep FontPath
Here is one of my fluxbox styles;
