Hi Alexies,

I too want a skinnable app. My current studies lead me to believe this might
be possible with Gtk::Widget::shape_combine_mask(), but so far I haven't
produced correct results.

I'll let you know if I manage anything interesting.

There is a very old example file called wheelbarrow.c which uses a character
string instead of image files. It isn't in the sample directory or on the
official server any more. I guess it's broken under the current Gtkmm. I
found it on Google.

It seems alpha blending is not possible at all, but simple transparency
should work.
