I'm writing a simple gtk application and I would like it to respond
correctly when the user changes themes using the gnome theme manager.
By this, I mean I want my app to change it's appearance when the user
changes the global theme, similar to the way in which gtk apps like gnumeric
and evolution do.
Currently the app doesn't respond to the theme change, and just retains the
look and feel of the default style.
The same behaviour can be found in most simple examples such as:
Using the garnome build of gtk 2.2.0 and compiling with
gcc -Wall -g hello.c -o helloworld `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`
works fine. However when I use the Gnome theme manager to change the
global theme, the style of the button and other widgets are not updated.
If I manually specify the GTK2_RC_FILES environment variable, then it loads
the theme correctly. It also uses the correct theme if I manually call
gtk_rc_parse at the start of main.
What i'd like to know is, what do I have to do in order to make my
application change theme correctly?
