Question Xmonad and gtk2


I use Slackware with Xmonad and everything would be great, but i can't use gtk2-themes, it just doesn't work and all gtk2-based applications look a little ugly. How can i solve this problem?
P.S. Sorry for my English.

Create a .gtkrc-2.0 file in your home directory and put the following in it.
Code:
gtk-theme-name = "Xfce-4.6"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome"
Change the theme names to suit your tastes.

Alternatively you can use the programs xfce4-appearance-settings (pre-installed on a default Slackware install), gtk-chtheme or lxappearance (both available as Slackbuild) to set the GTK theme.
