default gtk theme in icewm


Hi,
I downloaded a new gtk theme and made it the default in GNOME. The only problem is that I use icewm, and the default theme is still the old one. So, how do I make the new theme default in icewm?

Thanks.

use a program like switch2 to change gtk2 themes, or just edit ~/.gtkrc-2.0 yourself.

Note that window managers have their own themes independent of gtk. Switching the gtk theme only changes how gtk apps look within their windows. To change the borders and the task bar you need to change the icewm theme.
