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