Change the apps interface?


I wonder if and how to change the boring gray interface for all the apps? In kde I was able to do this with kde's configuration panel. I guess this has something to do with gtk? I've googled for gtk skins but with no success... Anyway help will be appreciated=)

Try searching for gtk "themes". There is also a handy little program called switch2 that allows you to change your gtk2 theme (you can also change it with gnomes control center).

gnome-look has a lot of gtk skins. You can also use gtk-qt-theme engine to make gnome apps look like kde apps.
