Re: Background image for a window

Hmm, I can set the bg for the widget as well, but I can't rely on a patched
module install since this will be used on end-user machines (running
different distros, gtk2-perl versions etc)
Is there any other way?

I want to put an image in the background of a window with text labels

In Gtk1 i used:
$window_style->bg_pixmap('normal', $pixmap);
$window->window->set_back_pixmap($pixmap, 0);

but this fails in GTK2
(error message:"Usage: Gtk2::Style::bg_pixmap(style, state)")

Is there a better/proper way to do this?

setting the pixmap in the style (with the duplicate style and attach 
and all that) should be sufficient; but, as you see, we have that bound 
only as an accessor, not as a mutator.  attached is a patch that would 
make that work.

just setting the backing pixmap on the gdk window will not really be 
enough, because the widget style will paint right over top of it.

I think it worked on the Wiley Coyote model of project management - if
at any point you looked down and realised what you were doing was
impossible then you'd instantly fail.
