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 muhri@muhri.net.
