the last one allows one to specify the theme on commandline...
but you don't have to run them all the time like
gnome-settings-daemon... just run them once, select your theme and they
will set up your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 so that all gtk apps will use that
theme from now on... (unless you start up gnome-settings-daemon which
will enforce the theme selected in gnome settings... don't know why they
did it that way...)
