Changing the GTK+ Theme

I'm playing with gtk+ 2.0 Change Theme right now.
It's an app with can preview/load GTK+ Themes.

My feeling was, the standard "grey" background color of all GTK apps is pretty ugly.

Most iLiad's internal software (ersetup etc.) are written in GTK. When you load a theme the look of these apps changes, too.
The effects of changing a theme are visible in the screen shots. Music player gimmix was used as sample GTK app.

XLiquid is not an optimal theme for iLiad, but it is pretty popular here.

content of file "_local/home/.gtkrc-2.0" on memory card:
Code:
# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT
include "/usr/share/themes/XLiquid_GTK-1.0.3/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font" {
	font_name = "URW Bookman L, 10"
}

widget_class "*" style "user-font"

gtk-font-name="URW Bookman L, 10"

include "/usr/local/home/.gtkrc.mine"

# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT
screenshots:
# gimmix [default theme is loaded]
# gtk-chtheme [loading the theme XLiquid]
# gimmix [XLiquid theme is loaded]
# iLiad settings (ersetup) [changed font, liquid pin code box]
