This works for any theme (If doesn't work correctly with a theme, please report bug here). You can revert all changes with just a click.
If you use Ubuntu, Linux Mint or any Ubuntu based distro, install the tool from the Shimmer Project PPA. It is available for both Precise and Quantal.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shimmerproject/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gtk-theme-config
If you use Fedora, add the repo to install.
su -c "curl http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/satya164:/gtk-theme-config/Fedora_17/home:satya164:gtk-theme-config.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/gtk-theme-config.repo && yum install gtk-theme-config"
A repo for OpenSUSE is also available here.
Also thanks to the Arch Linux community who provide a PKGBUILD, install via Aur here.
If you use other distros, you have to compile it from source (sorry), it is straight forward,
First install the build dependencies, gtk3-devel (>= 3.4.2), glib2-devel, vala (>=0.16.1)
Then clone from git and compile,
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:satya164/gtk-theme-config.git cd gtk-theme-config make sudo make install
The source code is available on GitHub.
