Change GTK Theme in Enlightenment 17

I just installed E17, and wow, I'm impressed. Anyway, here's my problem. All my GTK applications are really, really ugly, since it doesn't seem to be using the GTK theme that I had on GNOME. Also, if I open up and use Nautilus, none of the icons show up (I'm assuming because E17 doesn't load them or something). Is there anyway I can make GTK apps look like they did on Gnome?

You could run gnome-theme-manager and see if that applies your current settings. Other than that, the correct settings in .gtkrc or .gtkrc-2.0 should work.

I think I just had to close Gnome (I was running both simultaneously). Seems to work perfectly now, thanks =D.
