[Gtk-sharp-list] How can I use CSS styling in my GTK# application?

Styling with CSS is a feature introduced in GTK+ 3.0 (the native C library).
Currently, stable versions of GTK# target GTK+ 2.x, as consequence they
don't provide the CssProvider class.

So if you want to use CSS styling in your GTK# application, you need to use
GTK# 2.99.x, which is still in the beta stage:

The Banshee source in git master has been ported to use GTK# 2.99.x, that's
why it uses CssProvider.

I hope this clarifies things for you.
