How can I use custom gtk themes on a plain i3 install (without any additional desktop environments)?
This blog post inspired me to try it out.
create a new config file for gtk2: vim ~/.gtkrc-2.0
gtk-theme-name = "delorean-dark-theme-3.9"
gtk-font-name = "Open Sans 8"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome"
That's it. I guess you can easily adapt it to any other theme.
If you run GNOME alongside i3 it is a good idea to have at least these daemos launched at startup:
# Restore GNOME's settings exec --no-startup-id /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon-localeexec # Fix a bug in gnome-settings-daemon: http://feeding.cloud.geek.nz/posts/creating-a-modern-tiling-desktop-environment-using-i3/ exec --no-startup-id dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/cursor/active false
Alternative: Use lxappearance
