Wrestling with gtk
I'm working on something in GTK where I want to set the background of the buttons black, and have the foreground text either blue or yellow depending upon the state of the button.
My current desktop is gnome in fedora core 1, though ultimately I'll be running the app on something else.
I've finally gotten to the point that if I set my theme to LrcMist00 I can muck with
c and make global changes. However, while I can change the theme from the preferences->theme menu, I can't find the file that actually gets changed.
grep -i lrcmist *
grep -i lrdmist .*
grep -i lrcmist .*/*
and so forth don't even show it in any of the files.
I've also made a small program using glade that has both vertical and horizontal buttons. I've given the various widgets names, but don't seem to be able to alter their appearance at all.
I've poked around looking for documentation. I have the SAMS learn gtk in 21 days book, but that discussses programming rather than configuring. It lightly brushes on gtkrc files, but doesn't go into any usable detail. I found Havoc Pennington's tutorial on programming in gtk+ but it doesn't quite get me where I need to be.
This is proving very frustrating.
I'd love to RTFM but I can't seem to find the Right FM to FR.
