As far as I can tell, (though, quite possibly I am wrong), there is no
simple way to set style parameters for tooltips from gtkrc files.
This is because the tooltip popup widget is never given a name other
than the default "GtkWindow". One can't change the tooltip color
in the rc file without changing colors for all GtkWindow's.
Am I missing something?
I know about gtk_tooltips_set_colors(), but it seems, actually, like a
bit of a hack to me. Seems one ought to be able to configure tooltips
colors via rc files... Am I off base?
If someone will deem this a good idea, I can produce patches. (I
think the fix is slightly more involved than just naming the popup
window, since one should preserve (backward) compatibility with
gtk_tooltips_set_colors().) (Actually the implentation of
gtk_tooltips_set_colors() looks a little broken to me (gtk+-971109)
