#  The problems

After installing lightweight window managers, I noticed that some gtk applications didn't work ( thunar or nautilus, for example ) because of a dbus problem. Moreover, the gtk applications looked ugly, the icons didn't show up. 

#  making dbus run

You have to add the following line to /etc/rc.conf 

Don't forget to put the right dbus file in /etc/rc.d 
    cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/dbus /etc/rc.d/dbus

#  choosing your gtk theme

To solve the second problem, you need to create a .gtkrc-2.0 file in your home directory with the following lines : 
    gtk-theme-name = "Clearlooks"
    gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome"
