About gtk/gtk2 programs' themes and fonts

I have not installed gnome, I use KDE as my desktop system. I just want to know how to change gtk/gtk2 programs' themes and fonts. If you have gnome installed, it is easy, because you have gnome-control-center, but I only have KDE, and how can I do it?

The configuration file is ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and its syntax is like this:
gtk-theme-name = "ThinIce"

# Unfortunately most applications don't support this yet.
gtk-alternative-button-order = 1

# Override a couple of settings
style "my_style"
  font_name = "Arial 10"

style "combobox_style"
  GtkComboBox::appears-as-list = 1
class "GtkWidget" style "my_style"
class "GtkComboBox" style "combobox_style"
