Re: Something is missing, Gnome apps have no Face

Simply by placing a gtkrc file in my ~/.gnome directory
I have made all the gnome apps look differant than other gtk+ programs.

The file I use was actually made by Tigert and I found it somewhere on
the gnome site -- look through the old news to find a story about
Tigert's gtkrcs or themes without theming.
