GTK 2 themes and Gnome 3
Hey guys! I am using Arch with Gnome 2.32 installed a couple weeks before Gnome 3 was out. And this means I use GTK 2 themes for GTK apps (if I'm not mistaken...). I have some awesome theme which I modified and my WM is IceWM, so it's just for GTK programs. And I don't wanna switch this theme to any other. So the question is: if I update Gnome 2 to Gnome 3, will my current GTK theme stop working? I won't update any piece of software untill the strong need, but I'm wondering if I'll be able to use my fave GTK 2 theme with newest Gnome.

I upgraded a long time ago (but I don't use GNOME) and all the GTK+ themes still work fine.

Your GTK2 themes will continue to work with GTK2, but they will NOT work with GTK3 programs. For example, Firefox (GTK2) will still use your favorite GTK2 theme, but the updated Gnome 3 Gedit (GTK3) won't.
