Question Look of gnome and kde apps running under IceWM

Hi ppl!

I'm giving IceWM a try, but I'd like to know how to change the look and fonts gnome, kde and python apps have when running under it... (Fonts look too big in gnome and kde and python guis have i-cant-almost-read-it fonts, and they have the standard look which is not pretty ^^).

Thanx in advance!

I've never had a problem with GTK apps in Ice - QT apps look like crap without KDE, though, so I played around with ~/.qt/qtrc in the [Palette] section. As far as GTK, it'd mostly be ~/.gtkrc. Not sure about Python apps - don't they usually use a GTK or QT lib for the UI? I customize nedit (motif) through ~/.Xdefaults. Of course, each app has its own internal configuration for a lot of things. As far as *what* to put in them, I've never found any decent documentation on the gtk and qt rcs so I just type in random crap and see what happens. Sorry I can't be more specific but it might be something to look into until someone else posts.

Oh, and I don't use Gnome or KDE so I don't worry about screwing them up - for all I know changes you make in Ice would make them look funny back in Gnome or KDE.
