Here are some other programs that offer theme management:

GTK Theme Switch is a small and fast command line utility to
switch GTK themes on the fly. It also has an optional GUI to

directory and other ".gtkrc"s will be backuped.

from a list of installed themes, and set the selected theme as the
active theme without having to hand edit ~/.gtkrc.
