Hi Jonas,

It's generally a bad idea to manually change a Gtk application's skin (or
"theme"). You want to let Gtk handle it, so that it can respect the user's
theme. That way, all applications on the user's desktop can have the same
look and feel.

If you'd like to make a complete Gtk theme (for all Gtk applications on the
user's desktop), check out this tutorial:
