hey guys, looking for your help here ;)

i'm trying to polish a gtk theme i created a while back. this includes me trying to make the navigation buttons in nautilus a different color from all the other buttons in the theme. i just don't know how to do it, i'm hoping somebody can give me a hint.

attached is a mockup showing what i want to do.

Don't know if that's possible: nautilus uses the standard gtk widgets. But according to this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=4513676&postcount=7) you can make a launcher that runs an application (in this case nautilus) with a specific theme like this:

sh -c GTK2_RC_FILES=$HOME/.themes/yourtheme/gtk-2.0/gtkrc nautilus

Just configure your main gtk theme so it fits your wishes for nautilus, save it as another theme and point to that. You can also edit the nautilus launcher in /usr/share/applications if you don't want to create one apart for it.
