Hi All,

here is one simple GTK example scribble-simple.c, when I'm running it over DirectFB the default background of the screen is dark blue , I want to change it some other color ... Any idea where and what modifications should I do..

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <gtk/gtk.h>

/* Backing pixmap for drawing area */
static GdkPixmap *pixmap = NULL;

/* Create a new backing pixmap of the appropriate size */
static gboolean configure_event( GtkWidget *widget,
GdkEventConfigure *event )
if (pixmap)
g_object_unref (pixmap);

pixmap = gdk_pixmap_new (widget->window,
gdk_draw_rectangle (pixmap,
50, 50,

return TRUE;

/* Redraw the screen from the backing pixmap */
static gboolean expose_event( GtkWidget *widget,
GdkEventExpose *event )
gdk_draw_drawable (widget->window,
widget->style->fg_gc[GTK_WIDGET_STATE (widget)],
event->area.x, event->area.y,
event->area.x, event->area.y,
event->area.width, event->area.height);

return FALSE;

/* Draw a rectangle on the screen */
static void draw_brush( GtkWidget *widget,
gdouble x,
gdouble y)
GdkRectangle update_rect;

update_rect.x = x - 5;
update_rect.y = y - 5;
update_rect.width = 10;
update_rect.height = 10;
gdk_draw_rectangle (pixmap,
update_rect.x, update_rect.y,
update_rect.width, update_rect.height);
gtk_widget_queue_draw_area (widget,
update_rect.x, update_rect.y,
update_rect.width, update_rect.height);

static gboolean button_press_event( GtkWidget *widget,
GdkEventButton *event )
if (event->button == 1 && pixmap != NULL)
draw_brush (widget, event->x, event->y);

return TRUE;

static gboolean motion_notify_event( GtkWidget *widget,
GdkEventMotion *event )
int x, y;
GdkModifierType state;

if (event->is_hint)
gdk_window_get_pointer (event->window, &x, &y, &state);
x = event->x;
y = event->y;
state = event->state;

if (state & GDK_BUTTON1_MASK && pixmap != NULL)
draw_brush (widget, x, y);

return TRUE;

void quit ()
exit (0);

int main( int argc,
char *argv[] )
GtkWidget *window;
GtkWidget *drawing_area;
GtkWidget *vbox;

GtkWidget *button;

gtk_init (&argc, &argv);

window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
gtk_widget_set_name (window, "Test Input");

vbox = gtk_vbox_new (FALSE, 0);
gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (window), vbox);
gtk_widget_show (vbox);

g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (window), "destroy",

/* Create the drawing area */

drawing_area = gtk_drawing_area_new ();
gtk_widget_set_size_request (GTK_WIDGET (drawing_area), 200, 200);
gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (vbox), drawing_area, TRUE, TRUE, 0);

gtk_widget_show (drawing_area);

/* Signals used to handle backing pixmap */

g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (drawing_area), "expose_event",
G_CALLBACK (expose_event), NULL);
g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (drawing_area),"configure_event",
G_CALLBACK (configure_event), NULL);

/* Event signals */

g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (drawing_area), "motion_notify_event",
G_CALLBACK (motion_notify_event), NULL);
g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (drawing_area), "button_press_event",
G_CALLBACK (button_press_event), NULL);

gtk_widget_set_events (drawing_area, GDK_EXPOSURE_MASK

/* .. And a quit button */
button = gtk_button_new_with_label ("Quit");
gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (vbox), button, FALSE, FALSE, 0);

g_signal_connect_swapped (G_OBJECT (button), "clicked",
G_CALLBACK (gtk_widget_destroy),
G_OBJECT (window));
gtk_widget_show (button);

gtk_widget_show (window);

gtk_main ();

return 0;
