I am trying to change themes using gconftool-2. The way I am doing it now as follows:
- gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme Crux
- gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme Fedora
However, the above commands don't change appearance the same way as gnome-appearance-properties window. My understanding that each theme uploads its characteristics described in a file like /usr/share/themes/Fedora/index.theme.
How can I get gconftool-2 to use the definitions in ".theme" files so that it can work the same way with the same results as gnome-appearance-properties window. Please note that I am using fedora 14.
