Choosing a GTK1/GTK2 theme for KDE in Slackware


Ok, this may be a DUMB post, BUT I need help. (Before you ask....I did search the archives) How do I define my GTK1 and GTK2 theme choice when running KDE in Slackware?? My favorite overall theme is QTCurve which supports GTK1/GTK2/QT. I am using QTCurve in KDE, but all of my GTK apps (ie GIMP and such) use a default Windows style plain style. I would like ALL of my apps to look the same in KDE.

Thanks

If this theme supports GTK2 then you can set it using GTK-Chtheme.

You can also install the gtkqt theme engine. It will create an entry in the appearance & themes section of kcontrol, where you can adjust gkt2 theme preferences.

I'm thinking this is more of the rudimentary "hack" I was looking for.

Remember...we're Slack-ers. We like editing files.

Wow. I didn't even know about the suggestions above.

Some other options are:

Launch the xfce-mcs-manager daemon. This will give all your GTK2 apps the look that you set in your Xfce Control Center.

If you've installed GNOME, you can launch the gnome-settings-daemon daemon, and it will set the look of your GTK2 apps to what you set in your GNOME Control Center.

The third option is to edit your .gtkrc-2.0 file. Let me know if you want more information on this.
