If you sometimes use old GTK1 apps (like xmms), you probably know they don't look nice. This is because they use ugly default theme. To change it, you need to:

  1. download and install some nice theme
  2. change the theme

Some nice themes are in [extra]. To install it:

# pacman -S gtk-smooth-engine

To change the theme you can use gtk-theme-switch:

# pacman -S gtk-theme-switch

then run it with 'switch' command. That's all. Isn't it better looking now? :)
