I find my self using gnomecc all the time to switch to themes that I
know I like and that I know their names, its sort of an overkill to run
control-center and choose the theme - hit apply, etc.. I always have a
terminal open though :) so I wrote this command line util that you pass a
theme dir and it will apply it just like gnomecc does. Also it has an
optional GUI in Gtk like the one you see in the shot if passed
the --preview or --dock switch.
To use it, download it and untar it - run make .. and make install if
you like, then:
switch --help to see what options you can have or just run switch without
arguments for the theme dock.
I hope you enjoy this little app. Comments and suggestions are welcome -
email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Download: Fixed 100%cpu usage when previewing a theme and window sizing being too obvious
packages or you can apt-get it if you use woody.
