While searching for the documentation about the GTK, I found site with
themes for it, http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2/. After a unsuccessful
tries to find something about installing these themes (I'm a newbie in
GTK), I found theme consist of several parts - engine and some
configuration/resource files. What I wanted to do, is to make any of
this themes work.
After a bit of googling, I've found sources of pixbuf engine here:
http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sources/gtk-engines/2.2/ (As I
understand, it's the equivivalent of pixmap engine, anyway it works).
Finally, I've manually built it and placed in GTK modules dir (for some
reasons cygwin's configure/make produces .dll which doesn't work and
special win32 makefiles are outdated). And it works (I've tested it a
bit on "Glossy P" theme from the link above)!
So themes under Windows is no question anymore. :)
