In Archcraft, Bspwm use xsettingsd, a daemon that implements the XSETTINGS specification. To change gtk theme, icons and cursor theme, you need to edit the ~/.config/bspwm/xsettingsd file.

  • Edit ~/.config/bspwm/xsettingsd file with your favorite text editor
$ vim ~/.config/bspwm/xsettingsd
  • Change the values of following lines according to the stuff you want to apply
Net/ThemeName "Arc-Dark"Net/IconThemeName "Arc-Circle"Gtk/CursorThemeName "Pear"
  • Restart the xsettingsd daemon. Have a look at this for all available options.
