F.A.Q.
------

Q: Tooltips and content from various applet is unreadable. It seems that text
is there, but with dark background, it cannot be readed. How do I fix it?

A: You can change some attributes by changing your theme. aDeskBar exports 2
widget names to aid in this process: ADeskBarTooltipWindow and ADeskBarPopupWindow.
Study gtk2 theming and change these in your theme or home directory's .gtkrc.
For Adwaita theme it was enough that I added this at the end of theme's gtkrc:
# ADeskBar
widget "ADeskBarTooltipWindow*" style "tooltips"
widget "ADeskBarPopupWindow*" style "tooltips"
