Skins for Evolution?


I was wondering if there were any skins for the email client,Evolution?

I thought I heard that it could take winamp skins,or was I just dreaming?

There is a crystal icon theme for Evolution. It looks pretty cool. Here is the link...

thanks for the link
I see it's really just an icon set rather than a real skin.
However,it still looks nicer than the orginal.

If you mean theme for the buttons then you need to theme gtk1, or wait a month or two for gtk2 to come out. Then it will follow your system themes.

is 0.62. i am not sure where the months of waiting you

Sorry, it was a thinko for "evolution that uses gtk2", the 1.3.x series is in testing now, so 1.4.x will use gtk2
