4. Customizing
==============
The look of GIMP's interface can be customized like any other GTK app
by editing the ~/.gtkrc file. Additionally GIMP reads ~/.gimp/gtkrc
so you can have settings that only apply to The GIMP.
by editing the ~/.gtkrc file or by using "themes" (ready-made
customizations). For downloadable themes and further details, see
http://gtk.themes.org. Additionally GIMP reads ~/.gimp-1.1/gtkrc so you
can have settings that only apply to The GIMP.
Included is a set of keybindings similar to those in Adobe Photoshop (tm).
You can find them in the ps-menurc file. To use them, copy this file to
~/.gimp/menurc
~/.gimp-1.1/menurc. You can also manually change the keybindings to any of
your choice by editing ~/.gimp-1.1/menurc.
