291 Most configuration can be accomplished by using the various preference
292 settings inside the programs. Additionally, you can create a
293 <filename>~/.gtkrc-02</filename> file which can store gtk+-2 theme
294 settings that affect <application>Pidgin</application> and other Gtk+ 2
295 applications. Note that an example <filename>gtkrc-02</filename> file
296 was installed during the package installation and can be used as a
297 starting point or reference.
