I'd like to change my GTK+ 2 theme to my own theme macOS-Arc-White, under KDE this is simple, just go into the system settings and select the application style option. GNOME Tweak Tool doesn't seem to change GTK+ 2 theme, only GTK+ 3 theme. I've tried installing KDE System Settings (package name: plasma-systemsettings) in case I could switch it in it while still using GNOME but it doesn't seem to list the application style option in it. Here is a picture of what I see in KDE's system settings:

As you can see there's no "Application Style" option that's there normally.

I believe lxappearance package does that change when switching theme there and applying it. You can install it with:

sudo dnf install lxappearance

To start the application (if GNOME menu entry is missing) you can simply type lxappearance in the command line and press [ENTER].
