Description:

As the name suggests, this little program lets you change your gtk+ 2.0 theme. The aim is to make theme preview and selection as slick as possible. Themes installed on the system are presented for selection and previewed on the fly. For a comprehensive demonstration there’s a large variety of widgets.

It was originally derived from Gtk Theme Switch, but what started out as a hack to remove various nuisances now shares no code whatsoever anymore with the original. This is why I decided to opt for a new name.

To be honest, I'm not the original author of this tool. But I agree it would be very useful (I'm using fluxbox now).

it would be nice to choose the icon theme too, because gtk apps under gnome/xfce use gnome/xfce icon theme, but under kde they use the default gtk theme and it's orrible :) you can set the theme in .gtkrc with gtk-icon-theme-name
