Fluxbox and gtk trouble


At the moment i use GNOME 2 as a DE, but when i switch to fluxbox, all GNOME apps (evolution, gtm, etc etc) use the default look for GTK. This really bugs me, as i love fluxbox otherwise, but i really hate the GTK default. I'm sure i've seen apps with different GTK themes under fluxbox... I hope someone can help

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but i enabled GNOME support when configuring fluxbox.

Fluxbox 0.1.14 compile and installed from source,
Mandrake 9.1
and if anyone needs any more specific details let me know.

Thanks very much

Change the theme in GNOME and when you switch to fluxbox it will use the theme you've chosen for GNOME apps.

You can download gtk themes from
