Ok smile.gif
I found a gtk2 theme switch some one has done it
here is the link
http://pdaxrom.sourceforge.jp/feed/gtk-the...c2_armv5tel.ipk
i tested it and it works
we have just to install it
and type on the console
CODE
switch2

then a graphic user window is opened from it we have to click on the "+" button and check choose font, then browse to choose the font style we want
all menu fonts of gtk2 based application will change such as gimp gqview scite gnumeric abiword...
But dillo and xmms menu fonts will not change cause these two applications are based on gtk !!
so now i have to search for gtk theme switch

cheers

Hi Folks,

First, this works very well, many thanks for the link.

Second, I was trying this out, but specifying the name of the
theme tarball on the command line. I tried many themes off
of the gtk+ site, and almost all of them worked, although some
complained about the lack of the theming engine, and one was
a tar.bz2 which did not work (until I converted it to a tar.gz).
There was also some garbage after the EOF marker in that one.

I noticed that I could only execute the command once per theme,
and that if I tried again, I would get an error stating that the file
was not a valid tar archive!

It seems that when you specify the tarball as the argument, the
theme is installed in the ~/.themes directory. From that point on,
you just need to specify the theme name. If you try to specify the
full path to the tarball again, it most likely fails trying to create the
directory (since it alreay exists) but reports it as an invalid tarball.

I hope this saves others from wondering what is going on! smile.gif
