I don't know, where and how it is described, how to do...
I defeated both ardours just by replacing .rc file for dark theme with symlink 
do ~/.gtkrc-2.0 (writing of path to custom rc file directly to 
ardour2_ui_default.conf is useless — it just used light theme as by default)

But i can't defeat guitarix. Creating of new skin rc file with only one 
"include" line is not enough, skin images are still used. Sadly i can't use it 
with qtcurve for now, since it crashes with X Window System error:
(guitarix:30294): Gdk-WARNING **: 
/build/buildd/gtk+2.0-2.24.10/gdk/x11/gdkdrawable-x11.c:942 drawable is not a 
native X11 window

To fix problem i just pointed include line in my new skin to one of ardour2 
themes S), then started guitarix with GTK2_RC_FILES="path to ardour theme rc" 
and applied new skin.
