Appearance

The Theme selector makes it possible to switch between a number of preinstalled GTK+ themes, but unlike in KDE 1 there is no easy way to change the colors. Similarly the window manager Sawfish also comes preinstalled with a small number of themes. The file manager Nautilus also comes with its own themes.
