Thanks for the info...  I am now able to set the background color from code,
but I still can't do it from an rc file.  I keep reading the GTK v1.2
Tutorial by Tony Gale and Ian Main, but I just don't get it.  Is there a
better tutorial on using rc files?

In my main.c (that Glade generated) I added:
gtk_widget_set_name (app, "app");               /* app is the name of my
gnome app, created by gnome_app_new */
gtk_widget_set_name (dock1, "dock1");   /* when I created the app with
Glade, I created a scrollable pane */
gtk_widget_set_name (fixed1, "fixed1"); /* that contains a fixed layout */

gtk_rc_parse ("lcp.rc");        /* doesn't seem to care if it precedes or
follows above code */

My lcp.rc file:
style "lcp"
        bg[NORMAL] = {0,0,0}

# I've tried all the below, to no avail */
widget "app.dock1.fixed1" style "lcp"
widget "app.dock1" style "lcp"
widget "app" style "lcp"
widget "fixed1" style "lcp"

        rc files do work, and are probably the best way to customize colors.

        The other way is to call gtk_widget_modify_style(), something like

        GtkRcStyle *rc_style = gtk_rc_style_new();

        /* This tells it which attributes you are modifying. */
        rc_style->color_flags[GTK_STATE_NORMAL] |= GTK_RC_BG;

        rc_style->bg[GTK_STATE_NORMAL].red = 0xffff;
        rc_style->bg[GTK_STATE_NORMAL].green = 0;
        rc_style->bg[GTK_STATE_NORMAL].blue = 0;

        gtk_widget_modify_style (widget, rc_style);
