Just a note...  Most of the folks here run KDE, either 3.5 or 4.x, thus 
know about running GTK and GNOME on KDE, but not so much the other way 
around.  Thus you're not particularly likely to get folks that know 
enough about GTK/GNOME to help with that, tho it's possible you'll get 
lucky.  I'd suggest that for what you want, KDE apps running GTK/Gnome 
colors, you'll have more luck asking on the GTK/Gnome lists.

But as I said you may get lucky...  One never knows what sort of experts 
are hanging around a particular list at a particular time, and I've 
learned all sorts of stuff from the "wrong" list, over time. =:^)
