[SOLVED]gtk theme doesnt't change using cairo dock launcher

i've installed cairo-dock to have some eye candy on my openbox desktop
so everything's been good, and installed lxappearance so i won't have gnome daemon running all the time, the thing is that when i use the nautilus launcher from cairo dock, the window keeps the default theme of nautilus which is... in lack of a better word "ugly" you know is all gray and looks like the one that came with win$h!.. 98, but actually lxappearance works 'cause i can see the theme i chose when i execute rhythmbox or other application.
so my question would actually be.. why it looks crappy only when i launch it from cairo-dock? the launcher uses the command nautilus --no-desktop, so maybe i have to add something so it will apply the theme?? i don't know.. so please help me.

actually the theme already changed, i don't know why but it just changed maybe some bug or something anyway... i think this would be.. solved? LOL

Could you please reply rather than edit the first post in the future. It is a minor issue, but it helps reduce the zero reply count.
